Worcester Chorus’ “Mozart & Haydn!”

Recognized by the Library of Congress and touting “a tradition of excellence” as its hallmark, the Worcester Music Festival continues its 153rd season with grand performances of Mozart’s Great Mass in C Minor and Haydn’s Lord Nelson Mass on March 2. For this engagement, the renowned period ensemble of Arcadia Players and its famed director, Ian Watson, join the more than 100-member force of the Worcester Chorus, led by acclaimed Artistic Director and Conductor Dr. Christopher Shepard. Mozart’s Great Mass, an ethereal and haunting summary of 18th-century religious music, is highlighted by the sopranos of guest soloists Darlene Ann Dobisch and Beth Keusch, and alto Meaghan Joynt and bass Gregg Lauterbach are spotlighted in Haydn’s Lord Nelson Mass, featuring the familiar and ecclesiastical “Gloria” movement.

Beethoven Orchestra Bonn

On March 15, the 106-piece powerhouse of the Beethoven Orchestra Bonn swoops in from Germany for an evening of strictly Beethoven. As ambassadors of culture in their home city, the orchestra has filled opera houses with their majestic mellifluousness for more than 100 years. Under the precise baton sweeps of maestro Stefan Blunier, the orchestra delves into a diverse selection of Beethoven’s works alongside the ivory tickling of French-Canadian piano marvel Louis Lortie. The rarely performed overture from The Ruins of Athens in G Major, op. 113 sets the scene with a refreshing and lilting tone painting of muses and gods, before the emotional pendulum of Piano Concerto no. 4 in G Major, op. 58. The program concludes with Symphony no. 7 in A Major, op. 92, described by Richard Wagner as “the apotheosis of the dance,” which continues to confound and excite fans with its frenzy, humor, and graceful beauty.

Though this merchant sometimes offers a discounted price online, this Groupon is still the best deal available.
