King David is a three-part dramatic oratorio telling the biblical story of David that OSM first performed in 1982 in the original French. For this performance, we will use the original 1918 chamber orchestra version and an English translation. Leonard Bernstein’s Chichester Psalms draws on seven psalms from the Hebrew Bible to form a complex, challenging, affirmative work in three parts. For this performance, we will use Bernstein’s version for organ, harp, and percussion.
