As 2018 approaches, Henry Dehlinger is back at work on a brand-new cantata for soprano, bass-baritone, mixed choir, and orchestra. Dehlinger’s Kohelet, which means “Teacher” or “Preacher” in Hebrew, is based on the Hebrew text from the Book of Ecclesiastes.

Looking back at 2017, Dehlinger’s creative output included: The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock, a sweeping rhapsody for voice and orchestra with text by T. S.
