About this Event
Lamb of God Presented by Vocal Affinity and UCSB's Lumina/Singing Gauchos
Conducted by David Lozano Torres
Composed by Rob Gardner
Vocal Affinity Choir and Orchestra, in collaboration with UCSB’s Lumina Choir and Singing Gauchos, present Rob Gardner’s famous Oratorio “Lamb of God,” on June 3rd at 7:30pm at the Historic and renowned Granada Theatre in Santa Barbara, CA.
“Lamb of God” offers a new and unique take on the Passion story in that it's told entirely through music. The music serves to heighten the innate emotion of the narrative and carry a very personal meaning to everyone who experiences it.
“Lamb of God” is a dramatic musical portrayal of the final days of the life of Jesus, from the foreshadowing raising of Lazarus, to the devastating arrest and crucifixion of Jesus, and finally to his glorious resurrection. The story is told through the perspective of those who loved and walked with him: Peter, John, Thomas, Mary and Martha of Bethany, Mary Magdalene and his Mother Mary.
Each year, an estimated 4,000+ performers across the world participate in locally-produced performances of “Lamb of God” in places as far-reaching as the Netherlands, Romania and Buenos Aires. With the support of community members Karen and Jim Nelson and acclaimed conductor David Torres, this work now comes to Santa Barbara. Join us for the Santa Barbara premiere and come witness the transformative experience that has been sweeping concert stages all over the world. It is the “Handel” of our time, and we hope you’re able to experience it.
