Until the sea is dead
Here is the place I'll stand
With the moon & the waves
In each open hand.

   — David St. John

Ralph Vaughan Williams' moonlit serenade from The Merchant of Venice provides a radiant introduction to a selection of music invoking rivers, seas, and starry nights, featuring the world premiere of composer Frank Ticheli's first work for chorus and orchestra, The Shore, a song cycle on text by poet David St. John.

Join Frank Ticheli, David St. John, and Assistant Conductor Robert Istad as they discuss The Shore during the concert preview at 7:00 in the Renée and Henry Segerstrom Concert Hall! Previews are free and open to all ticket holders.

"When David St. John makes his annual pilgrimage to Moonstone Beach, he looks at the crashing tide and recalls his incarnations from years past..."
