PCE rings in 2023 with a new season tradition. We present a stirring program for chorale and orchestra that celebrates the universal expression of the human spirit through music. Amazing Grace, perhaps the most universal of folk hymns, has inspired people all around the world for centuries. Hear versions of it woven throughout the program and join the whole ensemble at the end of the program. Featuring African-American spirituals, and works by Adolphus Hailstork, William Grant Still, and J. S. Bach.
