A World Anew: The Music of Sydney Guillaume

CAE is excited to open its 54th season with the music of internationally-renowned composer - and Portland's own - Sydney Guillaume. Originally from Port-au-Prince, Haiti, his intricate, challenging and highly spirited music has been praised for its "impressive maturity and striking melodic distinction." With many texts written by his father, Sydney Guillaume's compositions promote human values and are full of heart and passion. His compositions continually enthrall choirs everywhere and have been performed around the world. CAE is pleased to once again welcome special guests The Linn Benton Community College Chamber Choir, under the direction of Raymund Ocampo, for these concerts.
