The Galesburg Community Chorus is excited to present Benjamin Britten's Rejoice in the Lamb and Antonio Vivaldi's Gloria on Saturday, November 19th at 7:30 pm at the First Lutheran Church in Galesburg. Soloists performing include Sunshine Regiacorte, Vanessa Campagna, Kathy Harger and Justin Swearinger. Tickets are free for all students, and may be purchased at the door or online (www.galesburgcommunitychorus.org) for seniors ($12) and adults ($15).
One of the composer's most famous and often performed works, Vivaldi's Gloria has an infectious and joyous energy which has moved and inspired audiences for centuries. By contrast, Britten's Rejoice in the Lamb is a classic of the 20th century, with moods ranging from exuberant to playful to wonderfully strange.
Sponsors of the concerts of this year’s season of the Galesburg Community Chorus are Midwest Bank of Western Illinois, Craft of Galesburg, Blick Art Materials, the Galesburg Community Foundation, the City of Galesburg, and the Illinois Arts Council, a state agency.
The Galesburg Community Chorus, directed by Dr. Tim Pahel, is the oldest community music organization in the Galesburg area and is currently celebrating its 77th anniversary.
