From Darkness to Light

From Darkness to Light

When the Deer Creek Chorale commissioned Dr. Daniel McDavitt to compose a choral work to celebrate the beauty of the Deer Creek River as it meanders through southern Pennsylvania and northern Maryland, a spring 2020 premiere was scheduled.  Little did we know that the Covid pandemic would delay the premiere for two very long years.

Finally, on April 24, 2022, the combined choirs of the Deer Creek Chorale and Goucher College performed Dr. McDavitt’s choral work, From Mountain to Forest to River.  Sunny weather, a great orchestra, and glorious music, helped all in attendance know that we are steadily moving from the darkness of the pandemic into the light of a new day.

The concert also featured a performance of the remarkable Mozart Requiem. It was truly a wonderful afternoon filled with the beauty of live, choral music.
