This rarely heard oratorio by George Frideric Handel celebrates the power of music to transform the moods and passions of humankind. Set at a lavish banquet in the court of Alexander the Great, this ode to St. Cecilia was a consistent success during Handel’s lifetime and continues to capture the hearts and minds of audiences through its drama and Handelian flair.
Tickets are $20 for adults and $10 for students/children.
At the 11th hour on the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918, the Great War ended. One hundred years later, the Tyler Civic Chorale seeks to re-tell the stories of a generation of composers and writers who either lost their lives in conflict or whose lives were permanently affected by the First World War. The second half of the concert will feature a rare performance of Marcel Dupré's De Profundis, Op. 17, a powerful work dedicated to the soldiers who died for their country.
In celebration of five decades of music-making by the Tyler Civic Chorale, four past conductors and current artistic director, Weston Jennings, will share the podium for an exciting concert displaying the variety and high-quality repertoire for which this ensemble has become known. This evening promises to be a concert you won't want to miss!
Following the concert, the celebration will continue with a fully catered dinner with musical entertainment, displays of Chorale memorabilia, and some special surprises.
Tickets for both concert and banquet are $35 for adults, and $20 for students and children.
For those wishing to attend the concert only, tickets are $20.
