Songs of Starlight

Friday, December 7 at 8 p.m. – First United Methodist Church, Seattle

Sunday, December 9 at 3 p.m. – Bastyr University Chapel

A unique holiday celebration in which every musical selection refers to starlight. The program takes listeners on a journey through the cycle of a day, with “stars of the morning”—such as J.S. Bach’s How Brightly Shines the Morning Star, and Ola Gjeilo’s Sunrise Mass—and proceeding on to “stars at night”—featuring familiar starlit carols, stellar masterworks, and offerings from choral music’s “rising stars.”
