The Knoxville Chamber Chorale, an ensemble of the Knoxville Choral Society, presents “Alone in the Night” at 7:30 p.m., Thursday, Oct. 24, at First United Methodist Church, located at 101 East First North Street in Morristown.
Admission is free and open to the public.
The concert will feature works by Byrd, Tomkins, and Weelkes, as well as contemporary composers Eric Whitacre, Daniel Elder, and Jake Runestad.
The Chamber Corale is under the direction of Conductor John R. Orr.
This concert is a musical journey from evening to morning and explores the impact of night on the human experience.
Evening can bring a settling warmth and comfort of togetherness, but also a tinge of fear, a prayer for protection.
Night can bring an awareness of natural beauty that spans the heavens and casts a different light on the realm of nature and emotion. Darkest night can bring forth darkest fears and grief, emotions that need spending to fully appreciate the peace, promise, and joy of a new day.
The Knoxville Chamber Chorale is a 28-32 member chamber choir auditioned from the membership of the Knoxville Choral Society
