What's Next:

Chamber Choir – Bach's "St. John Passion"

The St. John Passion is a monumental choral-orchestral work. For our performance we will engage a baroque orchestra playing with replicas of original instruments to help is hear the truest essence of Bach’s vision. As one of the most important composers in the early Lutheran Church, Bach knew how important it was to present the Christian story of the Passion in the language of his congregation, which was German, for the most immediate and personal impact. It is in that spirit that we will present the work in the primary language of our audience, English, which will give Te Deum’s audience an experience more closely connected with that of its first listeners.

2016-2017 Season

Antiqua – "Sacred Shapes"

The term early music usually elicits thoughts of Europe. But the United States has its own early music. Not only do the composers, such as William Billings, create the first Colonial American sound, but even created a notational device to teach music reading so all could enjoy the gift of song. The new device is shape notes.

This concert begins in 11th century Europe, taking the audience on a journey through eight centuries of music development, then travels on the Mayflower, showcasing the sounds and faith of early Colonial America.

Chamber Choir – "Audacity"

This concert will explore audacious hope, defiance, scriptures, and love. History has shown that audacity is what changes the world – not accepting the status quo but believing in one’s self. From a Judeo-Christian perspective, all humans are sinners, and with that in mind, there is audacity in asking for forgiveness – so for that we will perform Kyrie from Frank Martin’s Mass for Double Choir, Hear My Prayer by Sven-David Sandstrom, and Charles Ives’ Psalm 67. The Bible contains audacity too: Jesus’ bold claim to his disciples to become fishers of men is captured powerfully by contemporary composer Mason Bates in Sirens: V. From the Book of Matthew. Once Mary accepted that she would bear God’s Son, she had some audacious things to say in her Magnificat, which we will sing as set by Arvo Pärt. To round out the scriptures we end with a text from Revelation, James MacMillan’s Alpha and Omega. We will also perform several spirituals, which highlight the audacity of sneaking Underground Railroad Code directly into their songs, and expressing joy and hope despite terrible circumstances.

Te Deum is thrilled to offer patrons free child care at our concert on Sunday, November 13th at Village Presbyterian Church. Children will be cared for by trained, qualified church staff while parents enjoy the performance. In order to plan for staffing, parents must register their children in advance of the November 13th concert by contacting Marjean Lindquist at 913-671-2322 or Marjean.Lindquist@villagepres.org
