Greater New Haven Community Chorus Fall Concert 2019, December 14th 2019

Franz Schubert

Mass in E-Flat

with guest orchestra

Saturday, 7:30pm

Battell Chapel, 400 College Street, New Haven

The Greater New Haven Community Chorus proudly presents Franz Schubert’s Mass in E-flat for our upcoming concert. Schubert’s Messe in Es (Mass in E-flat) is regarded as one the greatest compositions of his late years. It was, in fact, one of the last pieces Schubert wrote. From the deeply complex harmonies and chromaticism, to the seemingly endless show of Schubert’s fugal proficiency, Messe in Es has been an absolute joy to experience and prepare. To collaborate with a guest orchestra of 20 professional musicians is a true treat, and the combined forces will top GNHCC’s charts as the largest performance in recent history.
