The Last Evening

Over its 35-year history Camerata has given 40 world premieres of new works, 25 of which were commissioned by the choir. This season we are working with our first-ever Composer-in-Residence, Edmonton-based Laura Hawley. The Last Evening, Hawley’s first commission for us, uses text by American poet Edward Hirsch (b. 1950), “What the Last Evening Will Be Like” from The Living Fire: New and Selected Poems. 1975-2010 (Alfred A. Knopf, 2010) as well as Psalm 107:23-27, 29-30.
