Les Arts Florissants and William Christie, conductor
The 3rd White Light Festival is an exploration of the unparalleled power of performance to illuminate the many dimensions of our interior lives. The Festival is an artistic invocation, a concert-hall sanctuary from the storm and stress of urban life. This year, we focus on the body as a vehicle for transcendence, featuring inspiring and joyful dance works from Ireland, the U.K., and India. We explore the musical benedictions of Gustav Mahler and the hauntingly spare music of Arvo Pärt. We welcome artistic expression from around the world—choirs from Georgia and Latvia, France’s Les Arts Florissants, and China’s Wang Li. And America’s own genre-defying Mary Chapin Carpenter is certain to entrance her audience through the immediacy of a singer-songwriter’s voice.
