Take courage. Take a stand. Take a breath. Take what you need. These are just a few words of encouragement as we seek an equitable society. The closing program of We Are One: Hope features you- a presentation of your artwork and your performance of Take What You Need by Reena Esmail. The entire program expresses a defeat of repression and an open invitation to a better society.

A pre-concert discussion led by Dr. Maria Espinola entitled “Asylum Seekers: The Stories Behind the Numbers” will take place in the chapel at 6:15pm.

Take What You Need

Coro Volante was founded in 2017 by Brett and Krista Cornish Scott. Reflecting the two founders’ long-standing advocacy for new music, the ensemble is devoted to performing and recording music by living composers from around the world. Made up of a core of sixteen professionals who flow comfortably between solo and ensemble singing, the chorus voraciously tackles a variety of styles and genres with a passion for highlighting new, emerging choral voices. Past performances have included a program by American composer David Lang, and the regional premiere of Passion and Resurrection by British composer Fr. Ivan Moody.
Coro Volante’s first two releases through the Ablaze record label, New Choral Voices Volume 2 and New Choral Voices Volume 3, received stellar reviews from both composers and critics, who cite the group’s “tremendous breath control”, “careful choral balancing”, and “beautifully realized performance”. Additional releases for the Ablaze label include New Choral Voices 4 (2020), New Choral Voices Volume 5 (2021), and Blessed Among Women, Weeping: Sacred Choral Music of Fr. Ivan Moody (2022). Upcoming projects include New Choral Voices Volume 6 and Requiemby Jeremy Beck on the Ablaze label and You Are Illuminated: Choral Music of R. Murray Schafer on the Centrediscs label.

Maria Espinola, Psy.D. is a Harvard-trained psychologist with expertise in trauma, women’s issues and multicultural psychology. Together with her multilingual team, Dr. Espinola evaluates asylum seekers from all over the world, in 10 languages. She has listened to the stories of hundreds of people who have to flee their countries to escape conflict, persecution, and extreme forms of violence. During this presentation, she will bring to the stage the voices of the most courageous people she has ever met.
