“I’m especially excited about this concert, because the music explores one set of extremes in the human condition,” Allan Friedman, WVC Artistic Director, says in a press release. “The first half of the concert features music praising various saints from history. The words of Jesus, the Virgin Mary, St. Francis of Assisi and others are set to sublime music by Renaissance and modern composers. The second half of the concert explores the other extreme of sinners. Legendary sinners like Adam, the Lorelei, the Witches from Macbeth and Bizet’s Carmen are portrayed in rollicking music. There’s something for every musical taste at this concert, as the choir sings music from Gabrieli to Gershwin.”
