The contemporary music chamber chorus Volti teams up with Left Coast Chamber Ensemble for a collaborative concert inspired by the art of letter writing. Together the ensembles present world premieres featuring letters of Janacek, Goethe, Virginia Woolf, and others. Separately, Left Coast performs Janacek's String Quartet #2 "Intimate Letters" and Volti sings a movement from David Lang's "battle hymns," based on a soldier's goodbye letter.
