Choralis’ spring concert explores the great 19th- and 20th-century composers of the “Franco-Belgian School” with all the glory and color of organ and voice. Louis Vierne’s Messe Solennelle is a masterpiece of late French Romanticism, exploring the antiphonal interplay between two organs and the choir. This and the rarely-performed Quatre Motets of Marcel Dupré anchor a program that includes choral works by Gabriel Fauré, César Franck, Oliver Messiaen, as well as spectacular organ solos, including the beloved Widor Toccata.

The music of Mozart comes to life in our season opener, featuring a variety of his most brilliant works. The solo concerto for voice, Exsultate Jubilate, K. 165 paired with his Piano Concerto 23 in A Major, K. 488 set a jubilant tone in contrast to the beloved unfinished Requiem, K. 626. Each piece offers its own luminescence as we mark the beginning of our 22ndseason.
