Arcosanti - An Urban Laboratory in the Arizona Desert.


             The 34th Annual Colly Concert

      Illumination: Lux Aeterna
    ~ Music of Morten Lauridsen ~

       Saturday, September 19, 2015

The 34th annual Colly Concert celebrates the life of Corolyn Woods Soleri. This fall choirs from across Arizona gather at Arcosanti to join world-renowned composer Morten Lauridsen for an extraordinary night of music and light. Made possible in part by the Herberger Foundation.

“I simply try to write something very beautuful. A meditation. A quiet meditation about illumination. And people connect with that. Makes no difference where it is, who it is. People are able to hear the music and very often go into a trasformative state. It connects with something very deep inside of them.”
