Join MCO for a new chapter in its musical journey—the orchestra’s first performance of music for chamber orchestra and choir.
Polyphonic Voices, directed by Michael Fulcher, has gained a reputation for its extraordinary choral singing and collaborations with diverse ensembles including MSO and Plexus. They join us for Schubert’s second Mass, a work inspired by the composer’s divine gift for melody. Utterly gorgeous and infused with a gentle mystery, the Mass in G is a pure ray of heaven on Earth.
Composed just a few months after the Mass, Schubert’s third symphony reveals an impossibly accomplished and confident eighteen-year-old symphonist. Written with sparkling classic lightness, a treasury of tunes and unalloyed joy, this rarely-performed work of genius is among the most uplifting of all symphonies.
