The Musica Sacra Chamber Chorale's March Concert Series, entitled “from Darkness comes Light”, provides the listener a musical journey from the fall of evening shadows to the clear light of morning. It should serve as a wonderful introduction to the Lenten season or Holy Week for all who attend. Scheduled for the last weekend in March, these concerts feature the Chorale accompanied by pianist Kevin Aanerud and the Talvi String Quartet; headlined by violinists Ilkka Talvi, past concertmaster with the Seattle Symphony, and Marjorie Kransberg-Talvi, past concertmistress with the Pacific Northwest Ballet.
