HAYDN Little Organ Mass

Join us for a beautiful program of choral works exploring a myriad of styles. Ryan will take the chorus through their paces: from the baroque cleanliness of the Haydn Mass, to the lushness of the Forrest Requiem, to the exquisite Dirait-on by Lauridsen, considered by some to be the dean of living choral music composers.

The choristers are loving this music and you will too!

Ryan preludes each event with a short talk about the music and the special magic called choral singing.
