Chora Nova: Choral Masterworks of the Baroque Era

Better late than never; I'm singing in this one:

Chora Nova will perform works by the Baroque masters Johann Kuhnau and Jan Dismas Zelenka in Berkeley, California.

Chora Nova, under the artistic direction of Paul Flight, presents Kuhnau’s Magnificat (C Major) and Zelenka’s Requiem for Kaiser Joseph I. Both works are scored for chorus, soloists, and orchestra.

The concert takes place at 8 pm on November 22nd, at First Congregational Church of Berkeley, Dana and Durant Streets.

Chora Nova is joined by Bay Area soloists: Rita Lilly, soprano, Ruthann Lovetang, alto, Mark Bonney, tenor and Paul Murray, bass.

Tickets are $20 general, $18 senior and $10 student, at the door or online at

(Or buy your tickets from me.)
