Growth and Change - Winter 2007

Growth and Change – Winter 2007

This concert featured Amy Beach’s The Chambered Nautilus, a major work with lush, impressionistic harmonies we first performed in 2000. Its text, by Oliver Wendell Holmes, challenges the listener to summon the courage to grow and change. We also premiered a new work by Eleanor Epstein. Funded by a major gift from the Gidwitz family in honor of President Sue’s bat mitzvah, these newly-commissioned arrangements of Hebrew songs will make a significant contribution to the repertoire of Jewish music for women’s voices.
