What a treat we have for you! The East Bay Singers and Oratorio Society, accompanied by Jonathan Dimmock on the 5,298-pipe Cathedral of Christ the Light organ, will perform Maurice Durufle's "Requiem" on Saturday, May 29.
The program will include the Oratorio Society singing Benjamin Britten's "Rejoice in the Lamb," and the Baker University Chamber Choir from Kansas singing William Byrd's a cappella, "Mass for Five Voices." The concert will conclude with all singers and the organ performing, "I was Glad," by Sir Hubert Parry.
Buddy James, associate professor of music, and Matthew Potterton, of Baker University, will jointly conduct the 8 p.m. concert at the cathedral.
