Wichita Chamber... | Performance
With a libretto based on passages from Genesis, Psalms, and Paradise Lost, Franz Joseph Haydn's epic oratorio is among his most inspired works. Only toward the end of his life did Haydn have the opportunity to witness Handel's Messiah - and Haydn then confessed that he had never before known the full power of what music could be. The Creation was a result of Haydn's epiphany - and became an instant sensation in 1798. Soloists are Lily Guerrero, Randolph Lacy, and Charles Turley. John Harrison is Concertmaster, and Dr Mark Bartel is Artistic Director and Conductor of the Chorale.

Coro Allegro | Performance
Join us for an inspirational program of Lenten meditations and songs of praise. Spiritual themes of anguish, penitence, and forgiveness resonate in these moving choral works. Be transported by Poulenc's motets with their expressive melodies and spare, haunting harmonic language. Enjoy the deceptively simple pleasures of Brahms' charming set of choral lieder honoring the Virgin Mary in the style of old German folksongs. Finally experience the passion of Dubois' cantata, The Seven Last Words of Christ, in all its intimate poignancy and the exciting cacophony of its drama.
