This annual holiday concert in Old South Church will include the world premiere of a new composition by Nell Shaw Cohen, a composer, librettist, and multimedia artist based in Brooklyn, New York. Nell is the winner of our 2019 commission competition, and her piece is a three-movement work for winter entitled Blue Shadows, Silver Sunlight, based on poems by Margaret Widdemer, Sara Teasdale and Amy Lowell. The concert will include Arnold Schoenberg’s Friede auf Erden, an early romantic work calling for peace on earth, in addition to holiday carols old and new, for both choir and audience. (and may even feature an ugly sweater or two!).
