SCHUBERT-FEST - NORTH SHORE HIGH SCHOOL -SATURDAY, APRIL 5, 8PM
The North Shore Community Chorus, under the direction of Stephen Goldstein, will present the harmonious choral work and songs of Franz Schubert, one of the greatest and most frequently performed Romantic composers, at North Shore High School, 450 Glen Cove Avenue, Glen Head, on Saturday April 5, at 8:00 p.m.
Schubert, who is credited with creating the German Lied or art song, was inspired by the wealth of late 18th - early 19th century lyric poetry and the development of the piano. It was Schubert who dared to explore and experiment with the possibility of representing the poetry of Goethe, Schiller, Heine and others in musical form. The prolific composer wrote symphonies, chamber works, masses and more than 600 songs by the time of his premature death at age 31. Featured on the program will be Schubert’s Mass in G Major, composed at the tender age of 18.
Soloists include Arlene Travis, soprano; Brana Williams, alto; Matthew Koraus, tenor; and Ron Meixsell, baritone. The Island Chamber Symphony Strings, under the direction of Jeremy Kempton, will provide the orchestral accompaniment. Timothy Carl will accompany the vocal soloists on the piano.
Tickets are $15 for adults; $10 for seniors/children, and may be purchased at the door.
