MasterWorks Orchestra
Michael Busch, conductor

A musical highlight of the year, the 100+ voices of the Concordia Choir and Concordia Master Chorale combine forces with professional orchestra to present two fascinating choral masterworks. In the reknown Duruflé Requiem, flowing Gregorian chants are set within gorgeously impressionistic textures. Then in what he considered one of his favorite choral pieces, Ralph Vaughan Williams turns to the mysterious prophetic writings in the book of Revelations for his Sancta Civitas (The Holy City). An off-stage "distant" treble chorus and trumpet add a spacial dimension to the performance.
 

The Master Chorale and Concordia Choir are dedicated to excellence and perform for thousands of people each year in the beautiful acoustics of the Concordia Center for Worship and Performing Arts. They are joined by the MasterWorks orchestra, an ensemble consisting of professional instrumentalists from the community.
