THIS IS HOW YOU LOVE
True Concord Choir and Chamber Players
SEASON TICKETS STILL AVAILABLE
True Concord celebrates its first-ever Co-Composers-in-Residence, married couple Jocelyn Hagen and Timothy C. Takach, with their Southwest premiere of This Is How You Love. This multi-movement work explores the depths of relationships – infatuation, need, companionship, conflict, compromise, and love. The libretto is a mixture of different poets threaded together with transcripts from couples therapy sessions – the music is immediately accessible and will take you on a deeply meaningful and emotional journey.
yours is the light by which my spirit’s born:
yours is the darkness of my soul’s return
you are my sun, my moon, and all my stars.
– e e cummings
Completing the program is Brahms’s warm and wistful masterwork The Liebeslieder Waltzes, plus Eric Whitacre’s Five Hebrew Love Songs with text by Jerusalem-born singer and poet Hila Plitmann.
“Here I Am and Helios were highlights of my True Concord 22-23 season and I look forward to hearing what the two composers do together!“
