Join Choral Arts Society for Endless Hallelujahs, Saturday, March 21, 2015, 7:00 PM at First Presbyterian Church in Racine.
Exultation has no better expression than musical hallelujahs. If you love choral music, both accompanied and a cappella, this concert is crafted especially for you. Immerse yourself in the delight of hallelujahs from early chant to Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah” popularized in Shrek.

The Choral Arts Society of Southeastern Wisconsin will present Good Tidings of Great Joy on Saturday, November 29, 2014, 7 PM, Siena Center, 5635 Erie Street Racine, WI, and again on Monday December 8, 2014, 7 PM, St. Thomas Aquinas Church, 305 S. 1st St., Waterford, WI. This concert, based on the Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols, is one of CAS’s most popular and beloved traditions. The good news of the Christmas story is told through timeless readings and beloved music. Enjoy a break from the holiday bustle, and experience the true meaning of Christmas through these lovely performances in two stunning spiritual settings. 

One of the most influential individuals in history was born to a humble family, in an animal stall. Perhaps familiarity has somewhat dulled the impact of this story. But, if we recall humankind’s fall from grace, picture an oppressed people waiting for salvation, and consider the unlikely circumstances of Jesus’s birth, its power becomes clear.

A Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols is traditionally thought to have been developed 1880s for a 10 p.m. Christmas Eve service which was intended to keep men out of the bars. The format became a tradition at King’s College, Cambridge beginning in 1918. Brief scripture readings are read, alternating with related carols and hymns. They begin with the fall of Adam and Eve, continue with Messianic prophesy, Christ’s birth, and the travels of the three wise men. 

Tickets: Adults $15, Seniors $12, Students $5. Advance tickets available at Personal Touch Florists in Racine at 4060 N. Main St. or 5445 Spring St., or online at www.choralartsonline.org. Contact the CAS by E-mail admin@choralartsonline.org, or call 262-634-3250.

In an act of courageous defiance, Verdi’s Requiem was performed by Jewish detainees in the Nazi work camp at Terezín.  Commemorating the 70th anniversary of this historic act, the Choral Arts Society of Southeastern Wisconsin, James Schatzman, Artistic Director, proudly joins forces with the Kenosha Chamber Choir directed by Andrew Wyosnick and the Festival Arts Orchestra presenting Music Made Us Free: Terezín – 1944, on Saturday, October 25, 2014, 7 PM in EAA Chapter 838, 3333 N. Green Bay Rd., Racine, WI. A pre-talk will take place at 6 PM, and a reception will follow the main performance. This dramatic “sacred opera” will feature soloists Erin Sura, Brianne Sura, Edson Melendez, and Gregory Berg. A moving multi-media experience with video by Karel Suchy will contrast and complement the beauty of Verdi’s Requiem, and honor courage, perseverance, deep desire for freedom, and the power of music to transcend and inspire. 

Ticket prices: Adults $15, Seniors $12, Students $5. Advance tickets available at Personal Touch Florists in Racine at 4060 N. Main St. or 5445 Spring St., or online at www.choralartsonline.org. Contact the CAS by E-mail admin@choralartsonline.org, or call 262-634-3250.
