Accompanied by the majestic sounds of the great pipe organ, the Phoenix Boys Choir will perform GLORIOUS REVERBERATION on Saturday, March 19 at 7 p.m. at First United Methodist Church in Mesa and Sunday, March 20 at 3 p.m. at First United Methodist Church in Phoenix.
Tickets range from $15 to $25 (kids 12 and under are free) and are on sale at boyschoir.org.
The centerpiece of the program will be the Solemn Mass op. 16. Composed in 1899, this masterpiece has been described as a harmonically opulent feast featuring the angelic voices of the choir in conjunction with the colorful grandeur of the pipe organ.
The piece has not been performed in Arizona in over a decade and features the Phoenix Boys Choir Town Choir, Tour Choir, Young Men’s Ensemble and Masters Men’s Choir. The incomparable Dr. Jeremy Peterman will perform on the organ.
The concert also includes secular and sacred works spanning 1850 – 1950, including titles composed by teachers, colleagues and contemporaries of Louis Vierne.
As a bonus, this performance will be preceded by a concert-debate sharing the musical brilliance, life and historical significance of Vierne’s choral and organ production on the Western classical music repertoire.
The Phoenix Boys Choir’s Glorious Reverberation concerts are supported by the City of Phoenix Office of Arts and Culture and the Arizona Commission on the Arts.
