Intensive Care

June 9th, 2019

Cerimon House — 5131 NE 23rd Avenue, Portland

One in 113 babies is born with a congenital heart defect. In this concert, we reflect on all of the parents whose early days of parenthood are different than envisioned -- with babies born early, babies born sick, babies lost. These are often invisible stories, but they are also stories of hope and of transformational love.

In this concert, we give the West Coast premiere of Stephen Caldwell’s Pre-existing Condition, composed to honor his own son’s birth with a congenital heart defect. Caldwell sets original texts about his experience, as well as tender poetry by ee cummings.

We also release our CD, Only in Falling, with the beautiful work by local composer Renée Favand-See, celebrating the short but precious life of her beloved son, Owen.
