We open our 50th season and welcome new Artistic Director Robert Istad with music that explores the human need to understand our place in the universe and to connect with eternity, including the United States premiere of a work by Composer in Residence Tarik O’Regan, James Hopkins’ Songs of Eternity—commissioned in 1992 for our 25th season—and a salute to Leonard Bernstein’s centennial with his exuberantly theatrical Mass.
