Choral Arts of Chattanooga will open its 2019-20 season with "The Wound in the Water" Thursday, Oct. 10, at Second Presbyterian Church, 700 Pine St.
Artistic Director Darrin Hassevoort will conduct the 7:30 p.m. concert. The singers will be accompanied by Jason DuRoy, pianist.
Set to a text by Euan Tait, "The Wound in the Water" was composed by Kim Andre Arnesen. The work explores the theme of Mammon by singing of man's exile and the wounding of our world, of the beauty of the earth and of the struggle of a divided humanity toward a shared song.
Mammon (symbol of love of greed and money), divides humans into creatures of competition and conflict.
"The Wound in the Water" recognizes the journey toward healing and ends with an attempt at a shared song.
Tickets are $15 adults, $10 students age 12 and up with valid ID. Purchase tickets at https://choralartsofchattanooga.weebly.com/.
