Paul Flight Choruses

Cal Bach just announced its 2013-14 season (or at least, I just got the email), and it's quite nice:

October 11-13: Monteverdi Vespers of 1610
December 13-15: Christmas with Peter Warlock & Henry VIII
February 28-March 2: German Cantatas Circa 1700
May 2-4: Haydn & Mozart Rediscovered

I know some of the music on the May program, because I sang it with Paul Flight, CBS's conductor, with the Haydn Singers or Chora Nova, can't remember which.

Meanwhile, Chora Nova, which sends postcards instead of email, has a good-looking season coming up as well, all at First Congregational. (Last time I saw them, they were at First Presbyterian across the way from First Congo, and lemme say, it's a terrible location to sing in, because you can't hear anyone more than about 3 feet from you, and a terrible location to listen, because the church is dead, dead, dead.)

November 24, 4 p.m. - Dvorak Stabat Mater
March 15, 8 p.m. - From the British Isles
May 24, 8 p.m. - Zelenka Gloria (and presumably other works)
