Love, flowers, birdsong... no season brings as much color to
our lives and surroundings as spring. Works by Randall Thompson, Composer-in-Residence Linda Gingrich, and Artistic Director Gary Cannon celebrate the joys of love. We celebrate birth both literal and figurative by premiering a new work by major American composer William Hawley. Favorite madrigals by Monteverdi, Morley, Gershwin and P.D.Q. Bach evoke the season’s brightness and levity. In honor
of our rainy home, we include Edward Elgar’s gentle
The Shower. After all, this is a tribute to spring.
