Annapolis, MD (PRWEB) March 31, 2014
The Annapolis Chorale concludes the 2013-2014 season with a musical journey to Russia and Eastern Europe. Under the direction of J. Ernest Green, the more than 150 members of the Annapolis Chorale will take over St. Annes Church to fill the space with powerful and exotic music from the regions best composers. Called The Spirit Soars, the finale concerts at St. Annes Church in Annapolis are on April 4 (7:30 pm) and 5 (8 pm).
Among the pieces the Chorale will perform are Alexander Gretchaninovs Vespers, a work banned in Russia until the 1990s, and Henryk Goreckis Totus tuus. The concerts will also feature works by Western composers influenced by the Eastern European traditions, including John Taveners Song for Athene and Hymn to the Mother of God. Featured in the concert will be the womens ensemble, Cantori, and the Chamber Chorus. This exotic mixture of music will make the most of the acoustics of historic St. Annes.
