Kohelet – Santa Clara Chorale and Santa Clara University Choir
September 1, 2021
The Santa Clara Chorale presents the west coast premiere of Henry Dehlinger’s Kohelet, a cantata in five movements for SATB chorus and orchestra, with guest conductor Thomas Colohan, bass-baritone Kerry Wilkerson and soprano Danielle Talamantes.
Kohelet combines Biblical Hebrew verse with lush, modal melodies, energetic meters and colorful harmonic textures. The text is arranged from the Book of Ecclesiastes and Song of Songs in the original Hebrew.
