our 9th concert season continues
FSOF in Orlando, February 4, 2017
FSOF will perform the Florida premiere of Dan Forrest’s Jubilate Deo in concert Saturday, February 4, at 7:30 p.m. in the sanctuary of the Winter Park Presbyterian Church located at 400 Lakemont Avenue, Winter Park, FL. Admission is free; donations are tax exempt and gladly accepted.
Jubilate Deo brings to life the global aspect of the traditional Psalm 100 text, “O be joyful in the Lord, all ye lands,” by setting it in seven different languages and drawing from a wide spectrum of musical influences. Each movement combines some characteristics of its language-group’s musical culture with the composer’s own musical language. Movements include liturgical Latin, intertwined Hebrew and Arabic, Mandarin Chinese, Zulu, Spanish, Song of the Earth, and a closing movement combining several of these languages with English. The result is a stunning global celebration of joy, as all the earth sings as one, “omnis terra, jubilate”
