Enjoy diverse music that aims to inspire in two upcoming virtual concerts the Phoenix Chorale will be delivering online this month and in April.
The choir will broadcast its “Cosmos,” a free virtual concert at 7 p.m. on Saturday, March 6. Christopher Gabbitas, artistic director, will host this concert, which will take viewers on a journey through ancient and modern cultures, with pieces inspired by the night sky’s beauty. You can watch highlights from the Chorale’s “Cosmos” performances last year, including songs by composers Johannes Brahms, Ola Gjeilo, Felix Mendelssohn, Morten Lauridsen and others.
Watch the Phoenix Chorale’s virtual broadcast “LUX” at 7 p.m. on Saturday, April 24. This show will feature songs that stir up feelings of the inspiration of light shining on us. There will be performances from Phoenix Chorale’s “Lux Aeterna” held in 2019, including a choral arrangement of Sir Edward Elgar’s “Nimrod” and works by Palestrina and Poulenc. Soloists from the Phoenix Boys Choir will join the Phoenix Chorale for Gabriel Fauré’s “Pie Jesu” taken from his “Requiem.”
