Beethoven: MISSA SOLEMNIS
Nov 18, 2012 Sunday, November 18, 2012 at 4:00 PM
Ruby Diamond Concert Hall, FSU
Join The Tallahassee Community Chorus as we kick off our 25th anniversary Silver Season with Beethoven's 'Missa Solemnis.'
'Missa Solemnis,' or Solemn Mass, is one of Beethoven’s most challenging and intricate works. It was written around the time of his Ninth Symphony when his hearing loss was near total, an unparalleled compositional feat. Our performance of this masterwork will feature over 200 singers, a full orchestral, and four soloists.
Beethoven, in his inscription on the autograph manuscript of the “Kyrie,” writes, “Von Herzen — möge es wieder — zu Herzen gehn!” (“From the heart — may it again — go to the heart!”) May this performance go straight from our voices to your heart.
Tickets can be purchased in advance at tcchorus.org or at Beethoven & Company (894-8700). Tickets will also be available for purchase at the door or from a Chorus member. $20/adults, $15/seniors (62+), and $5/students with a valid student ID.
