So much of what we consider beautiful is contextual, and yet for generations it has been the aspiration of many, the subject of poets and artists, and even studied as a social construct. In an era in which such ideas are being challenged, SACRA/PROFANA will be taking on Saunder Choi’s new multi-movement work for choir and string quartet entitled “Verum Corpus” which pulls inspiration from Greek mythology and the traditional Eucharistic text to reclaim and recontextualize a trans narrative. This West Coast premiere will be complimented by more traditional choral repertoire that frames the subject of beauty in more familiar sounds and textures.
