The River  o  ETHEL’s Documerica  Grace   o   Devoted      

GRACE

In all senses, Grace is a vital resource: strength in goodness, effortless beauty, unconditional favor, and a reprieve. At the center of this astonishing program is ETHEL’s own adaptation of Ennio Morricone’s moving score to the 1986 film, The Mission. Nominated for an Academy Award, and winning the Golden Globe, Morricone’s score deals with cross-cultural complexities fueled by the quest for redemption against the backdrop of the jungles of South America.

Grace is a journey toward redemption in music. In complex, stressful, and challenging times, music provides both an immediate means of relief and a vessel for long-term healing and understanding. ETHEL has pursued this art in many ways over the years, in its own creative voice, opening its heart and skills to intimate collaboration with master artists from diverse cultures across the globe.

Also featured on the concert are ETHEL’s extraordinary setting of Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan’s Ghorak Dhanda Ho — a heartfelt discourse of faith in poetry and song (Pakistani Qawwali), a theatrical spirit-play Mare Jatralu (Hindu Kirtan), Zuni and Hawaiian ritual sun chants, and O Frondens Virga by the 12th century German abbess Hildegard von Bingen, a voice of peace and clarity from the deep past.

Join ETHEL on this path for an evening of unforgettable music.
