The New Haven Oratorio Choir presents its winter concert "Journey of Light," music for the winter solstice. The featured work is a concert premiere of Connecticut composer Edward Thompson's "Journey of Light," a work inspired by Irish music and its traditional instruments. The choir will be joined by an ensemble consisting of violin, tin whistle, harp, organ, bodhran and uillean pipes. Also to be performed are works by Elgar, Randall Thompson and a new piece by the choir's artistic director Daniel Shaw. A festive reception follows the concert.
