The Telos Trio commissioned Cary Ratcliff to write "Fresh Wind for Our Sails" in 2019. The result is a colorful, evocative, engaging composition that delighted the audience at its premier. The work is inspired by a century of commitment in the faith counity of Rochester, New York, to build a community of justice and peace. With movements titled "Fanfare for the Common Good", "Let Justice Roll Down Like Waters", "Eulogy for Lost Ground", "Fresh Wind for Our Sails", and "Until Justice and Peace Embrace", Ratcliff brilliantly depicts the blowing of fresh wind that inspires and energizes that work, the walls of anguish when ground is lost, and the ringing of bells which call together all who will strive for the common good.
Tickets available at the door. This program is appropriate for all audience members.
