Kick off the holiday season in celebratory style with the Sacred Music Chorale’s Christmas program, Sounding Joy. Filling the air with the sound of trumpets, timpani, organ, and voices, we will perform John Rutter’s symphonic Gloria, Daniel Pinkham’s Christmas Cantata, and Ralph Vaughan Williams’ Fantasia on Christmas Carols, plus a collection of other holiday favorites. This program is sure to be a great start to your Christmas season!
Performing our first Lenten concert in 7 years, the Sacred Music Chorale presents Wondrous Love. This dynamic and emotional program offers a varied collection of traditional Palm Sunday and Holy Week music from diverse composers such as Tomás Luis de Victoria, Anton Bruckner, and Pablo Casals, all leading up to Théodore Dubois’ dramatic oratorio The Seven Last Words of Christ. You won’t want to miss this unique opportunity to experience the season through beautiful and moving song!
In May the Sacred Music Chorale returns again to offer our Spring program, Amazing Grace. An homage to our favorite past performances, this year’s concert will feature an inspired collection of famous works from Gabriel Fauré, Randall Thompson, Felix Mendelssohn, and many more, plus a performance of the stirring Missa Gratulationis (Mass of Thanksgiving), written by local composer John Gordon. Join us for this beautiful and powerful conclusion to our 14th season!
