OPUS 21 - Coming of Age
It’s our 21st year – “coming of age” is an apt description. We will continue with our tradition of featuring two works, one from the past and one from the present. The featured work from the past will be Baldassaro Galuppi’s MAGNIFICAT – a short, delightful work for SATB and strings. The contemporary work will be Eriks Esenvalds’ IN PARADISUM, also for SATB and strings. Other repertoire will be mainly a cappella and a few with piano, by such favorite composers as Hans Leo Hassler, Thomas Tomkins, Benjamin Britten, Kevin Memley, Paul Mealor, Frank Ticheli, Richard Barchard, plus some Foster and Spiritual arrangements. Join us for a summer of truly joyful music.
