For our Palm Sunday concert, Chorale returns to W. A. Mozart’s unfinished masterpiece, the Requiem. The work will be accompanied by orchestra, and promises to be a noteworthy commencement to Holy Week Observances. The balance of the program will feature a cappella works by Kurt Nystedt.
Last Saturday, Chorale performed for the student body at Chicago’s Merit School of Music, in the west loop. Many music lovers, even in Chicago, don’t know anything about this school; I know I was surprised when I came to their facility and saw what was going on.
