The Evergreen Chorale’s late fall concert, Illuminare, features songs to light up the season from contemporary female composers with a special performance of the title work, “Illuminare” by award-winning composer Elaine Hagenberg.  Entering its 52nd season, the Evergreen Chorale is one of the region’s oldest and highly respected choral ensembles.

Internationally acclaimed composer Elaine Hagenberg will be a guest speaker during the concerts to introduce her highly acclaimed composition Illuminare (“Light Up”) The work uses  lesser-known sacred Latin texts, and takes audiences through a season of beauty and goodness that has been disrupted by darkness and confusion. But as Light gradually returns, hope is restored, illuminating our future and guiding us in peace. 

Under the direction of Principal Music Director Christine Gaudreau, the concert  also includes winter and seasonal works  by Sarah Quartel, Jocelyn Hagen and Susan LaBarr and features the choirs from the Colorado Christian University and the Jefferson Symphony Orchestra. 

Illuminare will be presented November 12 at 3:00 and 6:00 pm in the beautiful acoustics of Wellshire Presbyterian Church. Ticket prices range from $15-30. Tickets now available here.
