AVE: Kirchenabendmusik

The excellent professional chorus Artists' Vocal Ensemble (AVE), directed by Jonathan Dimmock, is putting on what sounds like a thoroughly lovely concert in a few weeks. Called Kirchenabendmusik - Evening Church Music, or, more commonly, Vespers - the program consists of music by Mozart, Haydn, Mendelssohn, and Schubert. I expect it will be quite wonderful, having sung plenty of choral music by the four. AVE also notes the following:
As usual AVE pairs its programs with charity and social action organizations; and this concert is no exception. With the country focused on health care, we will share our East Bay concerts with two nonprofits, both housed at Oakland’s new, magnificent cathedral: Christ the Light. The first of these, The Order of Malta’s Medical Clinic, offers free medical services for uninsured children and adults; the second is the Legal Justice Center which offers free access to justice through preventive education, community advocacy, and the operation of a free legal clinic. Materials about both of these groups will be available at the Friday and Saturday concerts.
