Our Identity is a critical part of our moral compass, and when its core is challenged, destroyed, or lost, we can feel confused, bereft, and afraid. However, such challenges also result in critical introspection, determination, and eventually, Evolution, amalgamating into a stronger Identity that can thrive in newer climates. Join Tactus as we explore Evolution and Identity in a concert of Renaissance polyphony, sung in Latin, French, Esperanto, Sanskrit, English, Hebrew, and Turkish. Our program features several world premieres on the theme by our own members and includes interludes played on organ and lute.
