Music holds all things together. It’s the connective tissue. With the help of the Ars Nova Singers, Stratus will perform magnificent and famous music written specifically to connect: “Intermezzo” from Mascagni’s Cavaleria Rusticana and Puccini’s “Humming Chorus” from Madama Butterfly. As these pieces served to connect acts and scenes, Randall Thompson uses music to connect text, music and the human heart, setting music to the poetry of Robert Frost.
