March Concert: Fate and Faith Explored!

Our audience reveled in the glorious music of Fanny Mendelssohn Hensel'sLobgesang, Johannes Brahms' Schicksalslied and Felix Mendelssohn's Psalm42". Through their music the chorus, along with soprano Dana Lynne Varga and a quintet (mezzo-soprano Laura Beth Couch, tenor Leo Balkovetz, baritone Will Farrell, and bass Killian Grider) drawn from the chorus’ section leaders, explored the joys of human existence, the cruel whims of fate, and human faith that God will provide.

As expressed to chorus members, our audience loved what they heard: “What a treat it was to be in Holy Name yesterday, from the concert's opening notes to its grand finale!  I had happy tears in my eyes, it was so lovely, and I wished I could have been up there singing with you.” and “I was blown away with the beautiful sounds and setting. What an awesome way to spend a Sunday afternoon.  [My partner] doesn’t usually go for classical music, but he really enjoyed it too - how could you not? So impressive!”

Join us on Saturday May 11 at 8:00, as we conclude our season by giving voice to “the dream unfinished” with music of Florence Price, William Grant Still, Margaret Bonds, and others.
