In a special symphonic and choral performance, “Jubilate Deo” will bring to life the global aspect of the traditional Psalm 100 text, “O be joyful in the Lord, all ye lands.” By setting it in seven different languages and drawing from a wide spectrum of musical influences, each movement combines some characteristics of its language-group’s musical culture with the composer’s own musical language. The Earth sings as one in Liturgical Latin, Hebrew & Arabic intertwined, Mandarin Chinese, Zulu with African drums, and Spanish.
On Friday, March 15, at 8 pm, The Royal Oak Symphony Orchestra with John McLaughlin Williams directing and the Metropolitan Detroit Chorale with Pasquale Pascaretti directing will present “The Consecration of the House” by Ludwig van Beethoven and “Jubilate Deo” by Dan Forrest at the Seaholm Wagner Auditorium.
