Simple Gifts: Sublime Choral Music that Inspired America

MIAMI, FL – Seraphic Fire presents the first program of their 11th Season, Simple Gifts, on October 17 – 21, 2012 at venues in Dade, Broward, and Palm Beach Counties. Tickets are $38 and can be purchased at or by phone at 305-285-9060. Continuing Seraphic Fire’s mission to reach younger audiences, a limited amount of tickets will be FREE for those thirty and under.

“‘Tis the gift to be simple, ’tis the gift to be free.” These powerful words from the Shaker hymn Simple Gifts inspired Aaron Copland to write his most memorable work: Appalachian Spring. With beautiful sincerity, these hymns are a direct link to America’s early history and an inspiration for composers over the ages. Simple Gifts is a celebration of refreshingly simple Americana, with music from the Shaker tradition, as well as Copland, Samuel Barber, Morten Lauridsen, and others. The earnest joy of this music is the perfect departure point for an incredible season.
