If there is a line between saints and sinners, it is a blurry one, and history is littered with examples of those who have crossed it. Oscar Wilde wrote, "The only difference between saints and sinners is that every saint has a past, and every sinner has a future."

Join DMVAE on an exploration of the concepts of good and evil through a wide variety of musical repertoire that spans history from Handel to Helvey and that includes genres such as the motet, gospel, spiritual and even jazz and popular music. The centerpiece of the program is Benjamin Britten’s “Hymn to Saint Cecilia,” a setting of poetry by W.H. Auden. Whether you are feeling more the saint or sinner, all are welcome and will surely find something to delight your musical taste!
