MasterVoices | James Bagwell, Conductor

This final concert of our 70th Anniversary Season will feature contemporary musical gems by masters of choral composition. The performance will open with a work that The Chorale premiered in 1947, Aaron Copland’s In The Beginning, for mezzo-soprano soloist and a cappella choir.  The soloist will be Virginia Warnken.  Following Avner Dorman’s evocative Psalm 67 (NY premiere), Toru Takemitsu’s pensive All That the Man Left Behind When He Died, and Krzysztof Penderecki’s ethereal Song of the Cherubim, the Chorale will conclude their regular season with Francis Poulenc’s beloved Gloria, with esteemed organist Christopher Creaghan and soprano soloist Marie Mascari.
