Perhaps sets an excerpt from the Artistic Director's Note of Choral Arts Initiative's April 2016 program. CAI's conductor, Brandon Elliott, didn't originally intend for his program note to be set to music, but it beautifully captures what musicians express through our compositions and performances. "Perhaps we may live an answer or illuminate a story," he writes; "Perhaps we may not." The last sentence quotes a line from Edna St. Vincent Millay's poem “To Kathleen."
This recording features Choral Arts Initiative, and Perhaps is dedicated to Brandon and CAI in celebration of their 5th Season.
In our lifetime, we will undoubtedly have so many questions left unanswered.
So many stories will be left untold.
Perhaps we may live an answer or illuminate a story.
Perhaps we may not.
So we turn to the security of constancy as dependable as the sea,
nature full of beauty and peace,
music that can teach and inspire.
Perhaps all we can do is seek comfort
in such things as flowers, and song, and you.
