Boston Choral Ensemble (BCE) is pleased to announce an encore performance of "Cosmic Journey" at the Hayden Planetarium at the Boston Museum of Science. The Boston Musical Intelligencer describes the first run of sold out performances as a "stunning success" in a "particularly compelling" venue. This "marriage... of well-crafted sound and thoughtful programming" is a combination of live choral singing with a visual tour of the stars and planets.
This final concert in BCE's 2013/14 season, entitled "Cosmic Journey", comprises a number of pieces related to the heavens and celestial bodies ranging from Zvonimir Nagy's evocative Eternal peace, to Arvo Pärt's Morning Star. It will also feature the extraordinary Lux Aeterna by György Ligeti (popularized by the movie 2001: A space odyssey) and Ēriks Ešenvalds' Stars for double choir and tuned water glasses.
Tickets for this event are only available through BCE's website. Please note that the space is limited and the first two performances sold out quickly, so be sure to order tickets soon.
