Join District5 as they step into the shadowy musical world of “death.” This transformative program shines a light on the complexity, beauty, and fragility within a seemingly dark place. Seamlessly combining works from the Medieval era through present day, the concert features the powerful voices of composers such as Hildegard von Bingen, Carlo Gesualdo, Reena Esmail, and Esa-Pekka Salonen.
