A Candlelit Homecoming 

This enchanting winter season, the Peninsula Women's Chorus welcomes you to relish the love, security, and warmth of an eagerly anticipated homecoming after a long journey lost in a snow-covered landscape. 

Delve into the captivating world of snow, exploring the myriad Inuit words with R. Murray Schafer's gently atmospheric "Snowforms;" discover the precise mathematical beauty of Estonian composer Veljo Tormis' "Talvemustrid" (Winter Patterns); and be immersed in the poignant emotions, and tragedy of Carol Barnett's evocative "Winter, Snow."

Highlights include ethereal songs from Johannes BrahmsVier Gesänge, op. 17Giovanni Gabrieli's glorious "O Magnum Mysterium" for double chorus; David Lang's contemporary masterpiece "i lie," which explores the sacred aspect of waiting; and Michael Bussewitz-Quarm's moving setting of "Nigra Sum,'' dedicated to refugees worldwide and all who undertake difficult journeys toward a better life. Our concert journey concludes with heartwarming carols, including a new-to-PWC arrangement of "Silent Night" and John Rutter's joyfully refined "Candlelight Carol."

We hope this musical journey warms your heart as much as the joyous homecoming that awaits!
