concert, “Passion and Glory,” featuring masterworks of European
Led by music director Dr. Yufen Yen and accompanied by Dr. I-Ying Lin, this
musical journey starts in the Romantic period in Germany where Brahms, with
his sentimental and passionate melody of “Zigeunerlieder,” or “The
Gypsy Songs,” brings us a taste of the happiness and sorrow that spring
from a heart full of love. Afterward, a selection from contemporary British
composer John Rutter explores the mystery and paradox of life. We then
conclude our concert in Baroque Venice with Antonio Vivaldi’s Gloria.
Performing with a chamber orchestra, we will bring you the full rendition of
this joyful hymn of praise and worship to God.
Come join us for a magical night of traveling through heaven and earth with
music, and experience the spiritual glory and passion of love that has
resonated with humanity through the centuries.
