September 16 and 17, 2023
For centuries, people of faith looked to fill their spirits not only with liturgical music and texts, but also non-liturgical or devotional music and poetry. Truer Words explores the works of great poets, thinkers, and faith leaders whose words offer comfort, grace, inspiration, understanding, and joy. The great poets include John Donne, King David, Gandhi, Christopher Smart, Michael Dennis Brown, and Mother Teresa; and music by Britten, Burleigh, Parry, Paulus, Bruckner, Julia Wolfe, and a world premiere by Te Deum’s new Composer-in-Residence, Anthony J. Maglione.

Join us for Post-Concert Receptions
One of our favorite moments of every concert weekend is gathering with our community of arts supporters, students, and dedicated audience members at complimentary post-concert receptions. We hope you plan to join us after Truer Words for a special time of connection.
On Saturday, patrons will enjoy a refreshing Wine Spritzer and salty snack in the Fellowship Hall at St. Mary’s Episcopal Church. On Sunday, patrons will enjoy cookies and lemonade in the Welcome Center at Village Presbyterian Church. We look forward to connecting with you!
