Peace & Awe

Bel Canto Chorus
Milwaukee, WI

We will be featuring one of John Rutter’s masterpieces, his Requiem. Written after the death of his father, this work takes the listener from the sorrow of loss to the consolation, reconciliation, and ultimate joy of resurrection. Rutter’s tender and moving Requiem has earned its reputation as one of the most popular choral compositions of the last 40 years. Along with works by two of America’s emerging choral voices, Dan Forrest and local composer Penny Corris, the words and music of hope and assurance will take you to a serene and tranquil state of mind.

Conviction

Conviction - Felix Mendelssohn's Elijah

Bel Canto Chorus
Milwaukee, WI

Experience Felix Mendelssohn’s iconic oratorio Elijah, a story of faith, despair, and renewed belief. First performed in 1846, it is considered one of Mendelssohn’s most famous works. Influenced by the choral masterpieces of Bach and Handel, Mendelssohn composed a highly dramatic and romantic recount of the prophet Elijah, whose deep confidence in his Lord resulted in victory and reward. Experience for yourself the powerful and sublime nature of this 19th-century work that continues to capture the imagination of audiences everywhere.
