You are here: NSCS HomeConcerts82nd Season



Julia Davids, Music Director

The theme of our 82nd season echoed the observation attributed to 18th-century US poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, that “music is the universal language of all mankind.” Through our three concerts, NSCS explored how music allows us to communicate across linguistic and cultural boundaries.

By engaging with music from four continents; taking inspiration from the massive singing demonstrations which helped return independence to the Baltic States; and through two uplifting interpretations of the Requiem, we are reminded of how music reaches deep into our common human experience.
