Raindrops footsteps


The opening concerts of BCE’s 2013-14 season celebrate the 100th anniversary of the birth of Benjamin Britten with his famous Hymn to St. Cecilia, one of the greatest choral works of the twentieth century. We celebrate the extraordinary choral music of Arvo Pärt with a number of works, including his popular Magnificat and we are honored to be giving the US premieres of two works he composed in 2012. Our program includes the world premiere of raindrops footsteps by Rita Ueda, winner of our 2013 competition for a new work.
