For spring, PEV takes flight with European and American works that explore sacred and secular dreams and destinations. Eric Whitacre’s enchanted Leonardo Dreams of his Flying Machine sets the stage for flights of fancy that are both heavenly and earthbound. Works by Bay Area composers Sanford Dole, Kirk Mecham, along with the premiere of a new piece by PEV tenor and composer Trevor Smith, are joined by Edwin Fissinger’s Lux Aeterna and Gabriel Fauré’s ethereal Cantique de Jean Racine.
