Western Reserve Chorale (WRC) continues its 24th season with music by two of the most recognized composers of the Classical Period, Joseph Haydn and Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. In its ongoing spirit of serving the Greater Cleveland community audience, the chorale returns to Church of the Gesu (2470 Miramar Blvd., University Heights) as part of the Gesu Chapel Recital Series. The concert, which is free and open to the public, takes place on March 13 at 3:30 p.m.

The concert program, titled Classical MASStery, under the baton of David Gilson, includes Haydn’s Theresiemesse/Theresa Mass and Mozart’s Vesperae Solennes de Confessore (K339). Soloists are: soprano Marian Vogel, alto Sandra Ross, tenor Timothy Culver and bass Brian Keith Johnson. 

Western Reserve Chorale is a nonprofit group of amateur and professional singers, many of whom are Cleveland Heights residents, dedicated to bringing high-quality performances of choral music to Greater Cleveland. Generously supported by Cuyahoga Arts & Culture, WRC welcomes new singers to join the group.

Rehearsals are held September to June, on Tuesday evenings, 7:15–9:30 p.m., at Disciples Christian Church, 3663 Mayfield Road, Cleveland Heights. David W. Gilson, artistic director, leads the vocal ensemble.
