The CCM Philharmonia opens its 2022-23 season with former Guggenheim Fellow Nkeiru Okoye’s Voices Shouting Out, which the composer wrote in response to 9/11. In her words, “it was a march to acknowledge those fighting on behalf of our safety, and yet a sparkling celebration of life for those who continue living.” Then CCM choirs and UC Choruses join the orchestra for Brahms’ Schicksalslied (Song of Destiny) and Symphony No. 1 in C Minor, Op. 68.
