Centered on Joby Talbot’s Path of Miracles, this concert explores the narrative of displacement, identity, and individual life's journeys. Talbot’s masterwork for a cappella voices is a musical pilgrimage describing the journey on the Camino de Santiago. Through its four contrasting movements based on the main posts of the Camino (Roncesvalles, Burgos, León, and Santiago) the music leads the listener on a unique reflective experience. Complemented by the work I Forgive by composer-in-residence Shireen Abu-Khader, which tells the powerful story of Egyptian writer and activist Sarah Hejazi, this concert is a powerful celebration of the multiple journeys and identities that make up our communities.
