August: The Drop that Contained the Sea - Santa Fe Gay Realtor
The New Mexico Gay Men’s Chorus and Zia Singers, in collaboration with the Rio Rancho Youth Chorus, present the Santa Fe premiere of Grammy Award-winning Christopher Tin’s The Drop That Contained The Sea.
Under the direction of Aaron Howe, this 10-movement classical crossover work features chorus, orchestra and soloists. Performed in multiple languages, the piece weaves together poems and prayers about water from different cultures.
The Drop That Contained The Sea originates from the Sufi concept that, just like every drop of water contains the essence of the sea, so do all humans contain an essence of humanity.
