It is the oldest Christian image in the Philippines. Drums and whistles make music within the Cathedral as women dance in colorful, traditional clothing, while raising a statue of infant Jesus. The Mass and banquet are held on the third Sunday of every January at Saint Cecilia. People come from the Omaha area as well as from around the country. It is a joy to behold and participate in!

The only ensemble of its kind, I the Siren continues to redefine chamber music performance art. Its evocative name is inspired by the alluring mythological creatures, with each Siren member channeling their mythical, alluring, and irresistible sound. The collective brings a depth of experience, enabling an explorative musical style, and the forging of a new career model.

 

Only a handful of compositions exist for our unique ensemble, and as a result, the collaborative actively records, arranges and commissions repertoire. Most recently, the trio premiered a set of three songs by New York based composer Martin Hennessy, juxtaposed with an arrangement of Zwei Gesänge, Op. 91 by Johannes Brahms (mezzosoprano, English horn and piano). Others premieres include, Anthony D’Onofrio’s Postcards, featuring poems of Nebraska poet-laureate, Ted Kooser, and Jodi Goble’s Eurydice (by H.D.) at Iowa State University.

 

 

Our focus on sacred music includes musical bookends: the work of J.S. Bach, and Johann David Heinichen with to the modern-day compositional work of Alyssa Morris, Assistant Professor of Oboe at Kansas Sate University. Her work Chrysalis, follows the life cycle of a caterpillar, paralleling the spiritual joinery of an individual, spiritual death and affliction, closing with the praise-filled hymn Lasst uns erfreuen, by Friedrich Spee, 1623.
