We acknowledge what the pandemic has taught us, that crises are weathered “with a little help from my friends,” to quote The Beatles. Collaboration, then, underpins every performance, which allows us to present many works that might otherwise be outside our repertoire, but which were created for a chamber ensemble of singers and instrumentalists. Towering figures of classical music are celebrated, while our continuing commitment to women composers and new works remains undimmed.
Masterworks like Vivaldi's Gloria, Fauré's Requiem, and Tchaikovsky's Vespers are complemented with classic suites based on dance by Brahms and Elgar. Brand new works from Melissa Dunphy, Sasha Johnson Manning, and Mårten Jansson prove that choral music remains a vital and evolving art form. And the Chorus goes back 'on the road' to explore some of St. Louis's best acoustics in six spectacular venues.
We will hold each presentation on a Sunday from 3 pm to about 4:30 pm.
