||PAST SPRING EVENT: Music of the Baroque
Wednesday, April 2, 2014
One of Chicagoland’s top classical groups, Music of the
Baroque, focuses on 18th-century works for chorus and orchestra. The
ensemble has drawn particular praise for its performances of the major
choral works of Bach and Handel, Mozart and Haydn. Sixty of the Chicago
area’s finest professional musicians comprise the chorus and orchestra.
At this event, Music of the Baroque will perform Haydn’s The Creation,
in which the creation of the
universe unfolds in vivid musical pictures—from darkness and
chaos, to the emergence of light, to the presence of Adam and Eve in
the Garden of Eden. Jane Glover conducts the orchestra, chorus and
soloists. Elizabeth Futral, Nicholas Phan and Christòpheren Nomura will
perform in this timeless work.
