Do you love supporting Philadelphia musicians? Do you love great music? Then these are the concerts for you: join the Chestnut Street Singers, the church's ensemble-in-residence, as they celebrate their fifth anniversary season by partnering with two of their favorite fellow ensembles, The Laughing Bird and PhilHarmonia, to sing some of the best and most exciting music written for large choirs.
The program will spotlight Thomas Tallis’ famed “Spem in alium,” better known as the 40-Voice Motet, and other masterworks by composers including Barber, Vaughan Williams, Palestrina, and Stravinsky.
There will be two performances of this extraordinary program:
Saturday, March 14 at 7 PM
First Unitarian Church of Philadelphia
Sunday, March 15 at 2 PM
The Rotunda at Penn
Free admission. Donations gratefully accepted!
These concerts are made possible with support from the Greater Philadelphia Cultural Alliance, PECO, the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts, and the Puffin Foundation.
