Skoryk – Melody
Trew – Come Closer: Songs on Texts by Elizabeth Krehm
Farrenc – Symphony 3


Evan Mitchell, conductor

Rachel Krehm, soprano

Myroslav Skoryk’s haunting “Melody” marks a defining moment in Ukraine’s artistic history, standing against oppression. Canadian composer Ryan Trew’s “Come Closer” is a stunning, heart-rending song cycle, created for soprano Rachel Krehm to cherish the memory of her late sister Elizabeth by setting Elizabeth’s personal and striking poetry to music. And we finish with an unquestionable masterwork, Louise Farrenc’s magnificent Third Symphony, a reminder of an until-recently forgotten Maestra who rightfully belongs in the same league as the celebrated symphonic titans. Join conductor Evan Mitchell for this unforgettable show.
