Spring Concert: Helios by Tim Takach

Sunday, May 3, 2020, 3pm

Nazareth Lutheran Church, Cedar Falls, IA


Helios is a concert-length work by Minnesota-based composer Tim Takach.


Mr. Takach describes the work as a "musical exploration of our solar system." He draws from a variety of poets for the libretto, ranging from the ancient Roman poet Ovid, to contemporary writers including Charles Anthony Silvestri and Patricia Monaghan. Mr. Takach began composition in 2013, gradually adding pieces over the years until the work was finally completed and premiered in May 2019 by The Singers: Minnesota Choral Artists. Bel Canto Cedar Valley is excited to be among the first choirs to perform this work by offering the Iowa premiere this May.


BCCV is excited to continue our tradition of collaborating with a guest artist on our concerts. The announcement of this exciting guest artist will be coming very soon, and it is unlike anything BCCV has ever participated in!
