The sacred sounds of two composers resonate in a mixed program of old and new music.
Arguably the most well known living composer, Arvo Pärt developed a unique and appealing style of composition often referred to as mystic or sacred minimalism. Aside from his popularity in the concert hall, his works have also been featured in film and documentaries.
One of the most prolific composers in terms of the sheer volume of his compositional output, Franz Schubert had an uncanny knack of creating appealing melodies. His works traverse multiple genres and include symphonic, chamber, lieder, operas, and incidental music.
This performance features the GSO Chorus, GSO Chorus Director Bryan Black conducting Schubert's Mass No. 2, and the return of GSO favorite Helen Kim performing Schubert's Rondo for Violin and String Orchestra and Pärt's Fratres.
Online program notes are available approximately two weeks before the performance.
