A contemplative Happy Hour exploring the porous boundary between mortality and the beyond. Musical selections include the slow movement of Beethoven’s String Quartet Opus 132 and the world-premiere instrumental-only chamber arrangement of Eric Whitacre’s profoundly moving choral work, The Sacred Veil. The setting – a marble sanctuary suffused with the rainbow light of hundreds of stained glass windows – sets the scene. Mimosa and pastry reception to follow. 

Ludwig van Beethoven: String Quartet Op. 132
Olivier Messiaen: Louange from The Quartet for the End of Time
Eric Whitacre: You Feel Like Home: Suite from The Sacred Veil for Piano Quintet

Kevin Kumar and Maia Jasper White, Co-Artistic Directors and Violinists
