Emerald Ensemble
Gary Cannon, conductor

Some of the twentieth century's most sumptuous choral composers hailed from Sweden: from early Romantic patriotism of Wilhelm Stenhammar, contrapuntal craftsmanship of Otto Olsson, simple folk songs of Hugo Alfvén, and the impressionism of Hildor Lundvik. More recent years have brought modernist tone-clusters of Sven-David Sandström and minimalist tranquility of his brother, Jan. The Emerald Ensemble returns to the Mostly Nordic stage and will expertly and beautifully demonstrate why Sweden has long been a cornerstone of choral music.
