Rehearsing and performing without a conductor or music director, the nine members of Cantus are renowned for adventurous programming spanning many periods and genres. ”All is Calm: The Christmas Truce of 1914” by Peter Rothstein, with musical arrangements by Erick Lichte and Timothy C. Rakach, was commissioned specifically for the collaboration between Cantus and Theater Latté Da. Through new arrangements of European carols and war songs for a capella voices, “All is Calm” recalls the remarkable World War I truce between the Allied Forces and German soldiers in no man’s land on Christmas, 1914.
This event will be presented in cooperation with IPLACe, the Interdisciplinary Performance in the Liberal Arts Center.
