Grace Episcopal Church
West Washington Ave. at Carroll St. on the Capitol Square, downtown Madison

The riches of Russian choral music will be represented by selections from Rachmaninoff’s Vespers along with ravishingly beautiful works by Grechaninov and Chesnokov. The scope widens to include sacred and secular music from various former Soviet Republics. Works by Veljo Tormis (Estonia), Pēteris Vasks (Latvia) and Vytautas Miškinis (Lithuania) exemplify the vibrant choral traditions of the Baltic states. Sacred and secular works from Armenia, Georgia, Ukraine, and Belarus round out this fascinating and varied program. There is also the possibility of something by Lennon and McCartney to bring things to a rousing close.
Advance tickets are available for $15 from www.wisconsinchamberchoir.org, via Brown Paper Tickets, or at Willy Street Coop (East and West locations) and Orange Tree Imports. Student tickets are $10.
Founded in 1999, the Madison-based Wisconsin Chamber Choir has established a reputation for excellence in the performance of oratorios by Bach, Mozart, and Haydn; a cappella masterworks from various centuries; and world-premieres. Dr. Robert Gehrenbeck is the Wisconsin Chamber Choir’s Artistic Director.
