In addition to a variety of sacred works and popular German folk songs, the chorus will perform the famous Liebeslieder Walzer (Op. 52) by Johannes Brahms set for piano four-hands! Come and enjoy this wonderful music – and who knows? You just might want to go grab a pint after the concert! Ja, das ist gut!

We conclude our regular concert season with one of Joseph Haydn’s greatest masterpieces: Missa in angustiis (often referred to as the “Lord Nelson Mass”). For this special concert, The Houston Choral Society will be joined by singers from St. Laurence Catholic Church and local choirs (who will be performing together at Carnegie Hall in June, 2018), professional soloists, and professional orchestra for a grand performance of Haydn’s monumental work.
Laurie Lester, soprano
Sonja Bruzauskas, mezzo-soprano

This program is very special in that it will be our send-off concert for Carnegie Hall. Come hear The Houston Choral Society combine with other local singers before they travel to New York City to perform in June in one of the most magnificent concert halls of all time!
