    With Singing City, the Chamber Orchestra of Philadelphia, Philadelphia Boys Choir and Philadelphia Girls Choir; Kara Mulder, soprano; Misoon Ghim, mezzo-soprano; Michael Hogue, tenor; and Daniel Teadt, baritone.

    The oratorio To Be Certain of the Dawn was commissioned by a Catholic body–the Basilica of Saint Mary in Minneapolis–as a gift to the Jewish community, to commemorate the 60th anniversary of the freeing of Holocaust survivors. In creating the work, composer Stephen Paulus and librettist Michael Dennis Browne have emphasized the victimization of innocent children, and a children's choir plays an important part in the score. The work is one of reconciliation and reminds us of the ongoing need for dialogue, especially in today’s political and cultural climate.
