Western Reserve Chorale presents 'Mass = WRC2'
This concert title pun is based on Albert Einstein’s statement, “I get most joy out of music.” The Western Reserve Chorale [WRC] plans to bring joy in music to the Heights with a March 18 concert of two masses: Schubert’s Mass in G and John Rutter’s Mass of the Children.
The approximately 100-member WRC will be joined by soprano Marian Vogel, tenor JR Fralick, baritone Matthew Brennan, and the ladies of Voices of Harmony from Beaumont School, and accompanied by an orchestra.
The concert will take place on Sunday, March 18, 3:30 p.m., at Church of the Gesu in University Heights. WRC, in its 26th year, is grateful to have been so welcomed into its new home at Gesu.
The concert is free and open to the public; a free-will offering will be taken to help support the cost of programming.
WRC will begin rehearsals for its June concert, “An American Tapestry,” on the evening of Tuesday, March 20. Rehearsals take place in the chapel space at Church of the Gesu.
Anyone interested in joining WRC is invited to contact Joanne Poderis, executive director. More information about the ensemble, including contact information, is available at WRC’s website, www.westernreservechorale.org.
David Gilson is artistic director of the Western Reserve Chorale, director of music at Church of the Saviour, and associate dean for student affairs at CIM.
