I'm not singing with Chora Nova this year, but I am sure many would find their first program a tasty one!
Chora Nova's sixth season launches with two beautiful, powerful, and popular Masses by Mozart: his Requiem, left unfinished as he raced to complete it on his deathbed, and the lovely Mass in C ("Coronation"). Dr. Paul Flight directs the chorus, orchestra, and four excellent soloists: Michele Byrd, Ruthann Lovetang, Brian Thorsett, and Paul Murray. This year, we also initiate a series of pre-concert talks, free to all who attend the concert.
Tickets are $20 general, $18 senior, and $10 student with ID. Tickets are available through the Chora Nova website,www.choranova.org, at the door or from any chorister.
