The superlative ensemble and its esteemed director return to the White Light Festival with Haydn's Creation, the triumphal oratorio featuring a trio of archangel soloists and a chorus of jubilant angels. Using text from the Bible and Milton's Paradise Lost, Haydn brilliantly depicts the birth of the universe through the emergence of stormy seas, radiant sky, sprightly fauna, and awestruck humanity. Christie and Les Arts Florissants released a two-disc recording of Haydn's Die Schöpfung on Virgin Classics in 2007. Les Arts Florissants presented a highly praised interpretation of Handel's Theodora in the 2015 White Light Festival and performed Charpentier motets in the 2012 White Light Festival.

No-No Boy
In this immersive, indie-folk concert, singer-songwriter Julian Saporiti and vocalist Erin Aoyama illuminate the Asian-American experience through song, storytelling, and imagery. Taking inspiration from interviews with World War II Japanese incarceration camp survivors, his own family’s history living through the Vietnam War, and many other stories of the Asian-American experience, Nashville-raised Saporiti has transformed his doctoral research at Brown University into folk songs to bring these stories to a broader audience. Alongside Aoyama, a fellow PhD student at Brown whose family was incarcerated at Heart Mountain, Wyoming—one of the 10 Japanese-American concentration camps—No-No Boy aims to shine a light on experiences that have remained largely hidden in the American consciousness.
