Volti presents Mantras, Miracles, Meditations. We are eagerly anticipating an exciting collaboration next season, when ODC/Dance’s KT Nelson will choreograph Volti’s singers, along with ODC’s dancers, in Joby Talbot’s “Path of Miracles.”
The journey has begun: come hear Volti sing one of the ravishing movements from this evening-length depiction of the Camino de Santiago pilgrimage across Spain on this concert.
The spiritual theme continues with the otherworldly soundscape of György Ligeti’s “Lux Aeterna,” familiar to many from its use in Kubrick’s “2001: A Space Odyssey.”
We’ll also sing Žibuoklé Martinaityté’s “The Blue of Distance” and Ingrid Stölzel’s “Into Being.” Finally, we’ll give the world premiere of Berkeley composer Robin Estrada’s Caeli Enarrant, a plea in these troubled times to “do to others as you would have them do to you.”
