John K. Russell and Michael Gerdes, conductors

Truth and Reconciliation explores the profound connections between the artistic output of composers following tragic loss. The program features three pillar works of choral-orchestral repertoire by composers dealing directly with tragedy, including the West Coast premiere of the fully-orchestrated version of Joel Thompson’s “Seven Last Words of the Unarmed;” Francis Poulenc’s sublime “Litanies à la Vierge Noir”; and John Adams’s “Mother of Man” from Naive and Sentimental Music. SDMC will join forces with the San Diego State University Symphony under the direction of Michael Gerdes.
