Across the Millennia with Assabet Valley Mastersingers
May 11 @ 8:00 pm
Shrewsbury – The Assabet Valley Mastersingers will celebrate the end of its 40th Anniversary Season in concert Saturday, May 11, at 8 p.m., at St. Mary’s Church, 640 Main St., Shrewsbury.
The program titled “Across the Millennia” will combine two historic choral classics—JS Bach’s cantata #80 Ein Feste Burg and Mozart’s Regina Coeli K.276—with music by two of the 21st century’s most accomplished composers. Ola Gjeilo’s 2016 setting of Walt Whitman’s poem Song of the Universal sings of “optimism, exuberance and unwavering confidence in our deeper humanity.” The Latvian composer Peteris Vasks offers a fervent cry for peace in Dona Nobis Pacem.
