Masterworks Chorale

Spring Performance

On Saturday, April 13, Augsburg’s Masterworks Chorale will present a concert featuring music of diverse styles focusing on music written for Holy Week.  The 50-minute concert will take place at 2 p.m. in Hoversten Chapel, Foss Center.

The concert will be framed by choral movements from J. S. Bach’s Cantata No. 182 (for Palm Sunday) “Himmelskönig, sei willkommen” (with chamber orchestra). Also on the program:

  • “Eli, Eli” by Hungarian composer György Deak-Bardos
  • “Lamentations of Jeremiah” by Z. Randall Stroope (featuring pianist Spencer Miller)
  • “Ubi caritas” arranged by Maurice Duruflé
  • “Memento mei, Domine” by Polish composer Paweł Łukaszewski
  • “Tristis est anima mea” a late Renaissance motet by Johann Kuhnau

Admission is free. A free-will offering supporting Masterworks Chorale will be collected at the door.

(4/13 – parking permit)
