Our Need, Cry Out: Concert Recap

On October 19, Ensoma Creative presented an evening of expressive choral music exploring the theme of our need to be heard, seen, and accepted. From the depth of uncertainty, we find the courage to cry out with the hope that there may be an answer.

Conductors Deborah Apodaca and Townsend Losey shared the podium in this concert exploring our inner humanity. Ms. Apodaca set the stage in beauty, intimacy and vulnerability with her own original poetry, as well as a poem from a recent member of Ensoma Creative, Kendra Schmidt.

The music—from Henry Purcell’s “Hear My Prayer, O Lord” to Mårten Jansson’s “Maria (IV)”—calls for a space of beauty and sophistication, which the historic First Baptist Church of Pasadena exquisitely provided.
