WNMF3 – LUMINOUS CRY

Camerata Nova & Prairie Voices

a lode of the rarest commodity in contemporary music: joy” – New York Magazine on Caroline Shaw

An evening of virtuosic new choral music at times distinguished as much for what is not heard as what is. Grammy and Pulitzer Prize-winners Caroline Shaw and John Luther Adams are featured alongside Winnipeg mavericks Lubomyr Melnyk and Andrew Balfour in a program whose beauty obscures a powerful dialectic between the natural world, the physical body and the human mind.
