From XL to L : 40 voices in space

May 21 @ 7:30 pm (19:30) - 9:30 pm (21:30)

$18.00 – $29.50
It suddenly struck me that that tiny pea, pretty and blue, was the Earth. I put up my thumb and shut one eye, and my thumb blotted out the planet Earth.
--Neil Armstrong, Apollo

Cocooned in the reverberant nave of Montreal’s Le Gesù Church, we are transported to the confines of space

40 voices gather round and surround us: Thomas Tallis’s ancient harmonies Gabriel Jackson’s mystical hymn Meredith Monk’s primal rite Marie-Claire Saindon’s interstellar ballet Alec Roth’s cosmic cantata.

On this 50th year of the discovery of the Earth as seen from the Moon, let us cut our gravitational tether, and take flight, way up there, to contemplate anew the frailty of our common household, that tiny pea, pretty and blue, our very own Earth.

Conductor: Andrew Gray
