Cold, Cold Night: An Evening of Choral Music
OBERON Shows
Friday, March 20 and March 27, 2015
BCE presents David Lang's Pulitzer prize-winning "Little Match Girl Passion" and other choral masterpieces.

Hans Christian Anderson's story of "The Little Match Girl" is a modern passion setting that describes the cold, cold night in which a poor girl freezes to death. David Lang's 2007 Pulitzer Prize-winning setting for choir and percussion instruments has received extraordinary popular and critical acclaim. Using only the most minimal musical material Lang has created a piece that is not only contemporary and relevant, but also profound. This concert also features the world premiere of the short opera Riding on a Train at Rush Hour by Samuel Beebe, winner of Boston Choral Ensemble's 2014 competition for a new work.
