We will hold each presentation on a Sunday from 3 pm to about 4:30 pm.

In Progressions, the Chamber Chorus explores transitions in time, space, emotion and even element. We reaffirm our commitment to unaccompanied singing by performing a cappella works from beloved composers as well as newer pieces sure to garner a place in the unaccompanied pantheon. Our audiences know us for stretching ourselves artistically, and we fulfill that mission with new music from Kerensa Briggs, Yakov Gubanov, and Dobrinka Tabakova, all of whom will fly here for the premieres. We also revisit our past commissions with fresh eyes. 

 

Highlights of the season include music by women composers featured at every concert. Pillars of the repertoire also include a rarely heard mass by Orlandus Lassus and Hugo Distler’s cantata recounting the Christmas story. Here is music of unparalleled quality, performed to perfection by St. Louis’s premier a cappella choir. In six distinct venues from Creve Coeur to St. Charles and downtown St. Louis, join us for this unique musical journey.

We offer songs in praise of wine, both literal and metaphorical, in pieces by Margaret Sandresky, E. J.

Advent to Christmas

 

Union Avenue Christian Church

733 Union Blvd., St. Louis, 63108

Written in the face of Nazi aggression, Hugo Distler’s Christmas cantata is a landmark of German sacred music. Its reflective notes contrast with the obvious joy of carols from Charles Collins,* Sasha Johnson Manning,* and Ivan Moody.*

Depth to Height

 

Third Baptist Church

620 N. Grand Blvd., St. Louis, 63103

A new song cycle from Kerensa Briggs* introduces a program of extremes, from the depth of despondency evoked by Carl Rütti* to the highest praise aroused by Magnus Williamson.* Much of this music is dedicated to the late Sarah Bryan Miller, music critic and friend.

Despair to Hope

 

Immanuel Lutheran Church

115 S. 6th St., St. Charles, 63301
