There are some musical compositions that are so exquisitely sublime that they transfix and transform the listener with their arresting beauty. We join forces with the choirs of Drury, Evangel, and Missouri State to perform some of these most beautiful pieces for choir and orchestra, including Brahms's haunting Nänie, Verdi's beloved Va Pensiero, and the utterly gorgeous Humming Chorus from Madama Butterfly. And a night of beauty wouldn't be complete without Tchaikovsky's lush and dramatic Sleeping Beauty Suite. This is a night of music that will leave you breathless with its beauty.
