The Hope of Loving: The Music of Jake Runestad

The Choral Arts Ensemble of Portland is proud to welcome internationally-renowned composer Jake Runestad to Portland for a special evening of his choral music, performed under his direction and in collaboration with the Linn-Benton Community College Chamber Choir, under the direction of Raymund Ocampo.  Considered a “choral rockstar” by American Public Media, Jake Runestad is one of the most frequently performed and commissioned composers of choral music in the world.  Steeped in a belief that music has the power to initiate positive change, Jake creates musical works that are “stirring and uplifting” (Miami Herald), and “that speak to some of the most pressing and moving issues of our time” (Star Tribune).
