Robert Gehrenbeck, Artistic Director
         
Join us on Tuesday, May 9 for our annual outreach concert at Oakwood Village Center of Arts and Education (6201 Mineral Point Road - Madison) The concert is free and open to the public.

Highlights of the program
We will perform Handel’s impressive Utrecht Te Deum, and a work by Bach’s great predecessor Heinrich Schütz: Nun danket alle Gott (Now Thank We All Our God). In addition, the choir will sing a couple Renaissance favorites: Palestrina's Sicut Cervus and Victoria's O Magnum Mysterium. The marvelous choral tour de force, Randall Thompson's Alleluia will round out the program.

We will also perform excerpts from our recent performance of Johann Sebastian Bach's Magnificat, one of Bach’s most glorious and varied pieces. inspired by Mary’s song of praise from the Gospel of Luke. Its music offers a sampling of every style of music in Bach’s repertoire as a composer. Imposing, concerto-like movements highlight the full chorus, whereas solo arias, duets and trios deepen the mood of the text.

Founded in 1998, the Wisconsin Chamber Choir has established a reputation for excellence in the performance of oratorios by Bach, Mozart, and Brahms; a cappella works from various centuries; and world-premieres. The WCC’s Artistic Director Robert Gehrenbeck has been hailed by critics for his vibrant and emotionally compelling interpretations of a wide variety of choral masterworks.

Admission is free and open to the public for the Oakwood Concert. Please join us for our final concert of the 2016 - 2017 season!
