Season and Tickets



Longing and Remembrance

Music is an uninhibited expression of the loves, desires, and agony of the soul — a medium to communicate passion and angst when words alone are insufficient to convey depth of emotion. Our souls, of course, are fashioned by our lives — lives in turn that are built by experiences, and experiences that are immortalized in memories. Join us as we weave a tale of Longing and Remembrance through Renaissance polyphony this Advent season, with motets from Byrd and Tallis to Guerrero and Victoria. Travel with Tactus through Time and Memory, dwelling both in the past and present: of apple carts in bustling market places, of fountains in spring time, of turtle doves in fig trees, and of electric energy in an atmosphere charged with anticipation and change.
