The haunting beauty of Debussy’s Sunken Cathedral sets the stage for a transformative journey inspired by the pairing of poet Terrance Hayes’ powerful words and the shimmering transcendence of Jennifer Higdon’s Blue Cathedral. In the spotlight, Sphinx Competition winner Sterling Elliott’s magnificent Dvorak Cello Concerto celebrates humanity’s capacity to hope, heal, connect and triumph.
