Works for choir and organ by Jongen and Bruckner
F U L L E N S E M B L E / B R A S S O C T E T A N D O R G A N
Belgian composer Joseph Jongen (1873-1953) is remembered for several organ works, the most festive of which is his Mass for Choir, Brass, and Organ. Coupled with this exuberant work are the complete works for brass and chorus by Anton Bruckner (1824-1896) – six pieces of power and majesty that couple brass (and sometimes organ) with chorus. A sonic tour de force to crown our season with splendor!

THERE IS SWEET MUSIC: SHAKESPEARE AT 400
Ralph Vaughan Williams’ Serenade to Music and other Shakespeare-inspired music
William Shakespeare inspired some of the most beautiful music ever written, and this concert will present a cross-section of it, from settings that were contemporary to Shakespeare (and may have been used in early stagings of his plays – by Thomas Morley, among others) to very modern settings by living composers and everything in between. Most of the program will be a cappella, but the featured work is Vaughan Williams’ Serenade to Music, with words from The Merchant of Venice, originally written for 16 separate voices, and performed here by exactly that, with piano accompaniment.

The many faces of winter – darkness and cold, wind and snow, introspection and remembrance – are the subjects touched on in this concert. Wintry works by Elgar, Rorem, Debussy, Vaughan Williams, Betinis, Holst, Baksa, Willan and others, will depict the many sides of this often-reviled by spirited season. Prepare to have shivers run down your spine, but also to have the warm of harmonious beauty fill your heart with acceptance and hope.
