Dreams and Prayers in Easton, Pennsylvania

  • Williams Center for the Arts, Lafayette College 317 Hamilton Street Easton, PA, 18042 United States

When brilliant musicians get together to play music, something magical, divine or heavenly happens. This is exactly what audiences can expect when the Grammy-nominated, self-conducted chamber orchestra of 17 musicians is joined by the preeminent clarinetist David Krakauer for Dreams & Prayers. Anchored in Osvaldo Golijov’s Dreams and Prayers of Isaac the Blind, this evocative program also features works by Hildegard von Bingen, Mehmet Ali Sanlikol, and Ludwig van Beethoven. Four works, three faith traditions, and 1,000 years come together in this stunning and exhilarating evening that celebrates the connection between mysticism and music.
