Premiered in 1798, Haydn's The Creation remains one of the most beloved oratorios in the repertoire and is considered one of Haydn's masterpieces. That's no small praise given the "father" of the symphony and string quartet's prolific output. This concert is being presented by The Greensboro Symphony.

From Darkness to Light continues the theme introduced in the first concert, the “eternal” light that tightly binds birth to death and rebirth. Night to Day, Darkness to Light, Death to Life, Bel Canto explores the Yin-Yang of these opposite forces that are complementary and interconnected in works with celestial and earthly images such as James MacMillan's Data est mihi omnis (motet for ascension day), Daniel Elder's In Your Light, Eriks Esenvalds' Northern Lights, Shawn Kirchner's Bright Morning Stars Are Rising, Ysaye Barnwell's The Spiritual (Cain't No On Know) and movements from Sergei Rachmaninoff's The All-Night Vigil.
