The beautiful, socially conscious choral works of Jake Runestad take center stage for this January concert series and Conspirare’s next recording. Runestad’s commitment to musically potent and well-crafted compositions aligns with current cultural questions about race, gender, orientation, and psychological challenges related to suicide and gun violence. “Runestad…has a particular knack for marrying powerful music to texts that speak to some of the most pressing and moving issues of our time.” -Star Tribune
