This spring, Orchestra Seattle’s 60 instrument charmers mingle their symphonic sounds with the Seattle Chamber Singers’ 40-voice chorus in three 70- to 95-minute programs of classic masterworks. In “English Masters,” maestro Alastair Willis steers Handel’s coronation anthem Zadok the Priest through First Free Methodist’s striking sanctuary, which bows skyward like the hull of an inverted wooden ship. The rich sounds of Bach’s Oster-Oratorium lend acoustical ornament to the Easter season as a trio of alto, soprano, and tenor lead a chorus of chocolate bunnies. Mid-May invites audiences to see spring sunshine and songbird geniuses spilling through high windows above the stage as the sounds of Bruckner’s Te Deum, Beethoven’s Eroica, and Mozart’s Kyrie in D minor flood the chapel.
