December 2015 East Coast Tour

Ben McKenna

In December, Motet Choir presented our third biennial tour of the East Coast. The tour represents the flourishing of a major initiative for annual tours (both to far-off places and in Chicago's many culturally rich neighborhoods), a program designed to connect to connect the choir to the wider community and to represent the Univeristy's deep engagement with the arts.

The concert program included seasonal music of the Renaissance from Britain, Spain, Italy, and the Netherlands, with music of Early America, including William Billings. Also on the program was Gerald Cohen's haunting Adonai Ro'i.

Mounting ambitious projects like tour takes a great effort from all of us, and it is truly only possible because of the generous support of our friends. We are immensely grateful to the multitudes who come to our concerts, bake us cookies, listen to our CDs, and welcome us into their homes. If you can, we hope you might consider making a gift in whatever amount you can to help us on our way. Your support gives one of the most unique and rewarding experiences many of us will have at UChicago. Thank you!
