Event

Voices of Ascension / Great Choruses
Thursday, April 18, 2013 at 8:00pm A spectacular celebration of choral music, featuring the full 40 Voices of Ascension! The program will include some of the most beloved of all choral works (such as the Mendelssohn and Ireland works), performed with the polish, care and interpretive depth that can only come from one of the world's preeminent choral ensembles. Two of the other pieces share the same text (Psalm 90) and are among the most profound works ever composed for chorus: Vaughan Williams' extraordinary Lord, thou hast been our refuge for two choirs, trumpet and organ, and Ives' astonishing masterpiece, Psalm 90, for chorus, soloists, organ and bells situated at all corners of the church. Maestro Keene has called Ives' Psalm 90 "quite possibly the single greatest composition ever written by an American composer." A lighter side will feature two rousing choruses by Carl Maria von Weber and Beethoven, each a tour de force vehicle for coloratura soprano Deborah Feldman. Finally, we will hear new works for chorus: the World Premiere of a piece we have commissioned from internationally-renowned composer Eve Beglarian, and the winning compositions of the 2013 Sorel Medallion Award. Quite a choral celebration! We are grateful to The Elizabeth and Michel Sorel Charitable Organization, Inc. for their generous support of this concert.
