About the Event
So much of what we consider beautiful is contextual, and yet for generations it has been the aspiration of many, the subject of poets and artists, and even studied as a social construct. In an era in which such ideas are being challenged, SACRA/PROFANA will be taking on Saunder Choi’s new multi-movement work for choir and string quartet entitled “Verum Corpus'' which pulls inspiration from Greek mythology and the traditional Eucharistic text to reclaim and recontextualize a trans narrative. This West Coast premiere will be complimented by more traditional choral repertoire that frames the subject of beauty in more familiar sounds and textures.
