Under the direction of Dr. Frank C. Jacobs for more than 20 years, Summit Choral Society fills audience ears with the language of choral music. Scribed by the quail-feathered fingers of a musical genius, Bach’s St. Matthew Passion will serenade souls when sounding out from the formidable vocal cords of the Masterworks Chorale with accompaniment by six soloists, a double orchestra, and petite vocalists from the Children’s Choir Program. Nestle into a grand-tier chair for immediate acoustic digesting or an orchestra spot for direct eye contact with the conductor.
Seating up to 3,000 melody absorbers, the E.J. Thomas Hall’s three-level auditorium features continental seating, which is equipped with roomier rows for optimal lounging and devoid of center aisles for easier mosh-pitting. For an undisturbed show viewing, cameras and recording devices are prohibited, as well as ringing cell phones and car-horn pagers.
