Moffat did such a great job cleaning up "RTD's messes" as you say that it gives me hope he can clean up his own messes in the Christmas special!

Also, it's on my birthday! Come hear us sing, and you'll be the one getting a present! :)
 
Just one more week until the Chicago Chorale Missa Solemnis! Do you have your tickets yet? The wonderful Carl Grapentine of WFMT will be giving a pre-concert lecture. Additionally, Peter van de Graaff, another WFMT regular, will be singing the bass solo.

Additionally, the concert has been named a Critic's Pick by Time Out Chicago. Don't miss out!

Always great to get such a personal insight into the minds of the composers. Makes performing/listening to a piece so much more meaningful!
 
Our conductor, Jay Friedman, includes the text of Beethoven's famous Heiligenstadt Testament in his contribution to our blog.

Chicago Chorale received an honorable mention in the top classical performances in Chicago for the year! Among the CSO and the Lyric, I'd say that's not too shabby. :)

We're performing the full original Howard Shore score, conducted by Ludwig Wicki, with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra. They're playing the movie and we're filling every bit of music live.

Do you have your tickets for the Chicago Chorale Voices Aloft concert yet? Check out this great video featuring three Chicago Chorale favorites: the Rev. Elizabeth Davenport, who will be giving the pre-concert lecture; Rockefeller Memorial Chapel organist extraordinaire, Tom Weisflog; and of course the incomparable E.M. Skinner organ at the Chapel. This concert will be a fantastic Mother's Day gift!

Not only is Chicago Chorale performing Beethoven's incredible Missa Solemnis in the beautiful Chicago Symphony Orchestra's Symphony Hall, but it's on my birthday! Please help me celebrate by coming to our concert Monday March 5th at 7:30! :)
Chicago Chorale originally shared:
 
Chicago Chorale and The Symphony of Oak Park and River Forest perform Beethoven's Missa Solemnis Monday March 5th at Symphony Center!

First performed in 1824, Missa Solemnis is often viewed as Beethoven’s response to J.S. Bach’s Mass in B Minor, a work Beethoven in fact never heard, but of which he was intensely aware. Composed at the same time as the Ninth Symphony, it shares the symphony’s position at the peak of Beethoven’s compositional powers—his mastery allowed him to strive for expression beyond anything heard prior to it. This is powerful, transcendentally beautiful music for orchestra, chorus and soloists. Chicago Chorale returns to Symphony Center for this work, collaborating with Symphony of Oak Park and River Forest.

I am so excited to sing our fall concert with Chicago Chorale, featuring music of Norwegian and Swedish composers. It's going to be beautiful, just like the Northern Lights which inspire the music. Along with our usual Hyde Park concert, we'll be singing on the north side of Chicago in Lincoln Park for the first time, so no excuses that we're too far away! :) Please watch the video below, and then go to http://bit.ly/tC00tg to buy your tickets, and make sure to say I sent you. There's free ice cream in the balance! :)
