Missa per Concordiam

March 16, 2024 @ 7pm
March 17, 2024 @ 4pm

Ars Choralis presents the U.S. premiere of Eric Delson’s Missa per Concordiam, written for the Brussels Choral Society in commemoration of Delson’s 20th year as Musical Director. Medieval, Renaissance, Baroque and Romantic gestures can be found throughout, lending the work a historical grounding while bringing ‘concordant’ harmonies to the traditional mass structure and promoting harmony and unity among people.

Carmina Burana

June 22, 2024 @ 7pm
June 23, 2024 @ 4pm

Composed in 1936 by Carl Orff, Carmina Burana is based on 24 poems of the medieval “Carmina Burana”. They cover a wide range of topics, as familiar in the 13th century as they are in the 21st: the fickleness of fortune and wealth, the ephemeral nature of life, the joy of the return of spring and the pleasures and perils of drinking, gluttony, gambling, and lust. Performed in a version with two pianos and tympani.
