Musica Sacra Chorus and Orchestra: Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and Michael HaydnSt. Francis Xavier Catholic Church
Sunday, April 27, 2014 @ 7 p.m.
Professional vocalists Rebecca Lloyd, David Adams, Raymond Feener and Jennifer Powell join Musica Sacra for its thrilling conclusion when it performs Michael Haydn’s rarely heard Requiem for Archbishop Siegmund, MH 155, composed in December 1771. A work of extraordinary pathos and expression, the composition served as a model for Mozart’s Requiem, written two decades later. Mozart’s celebratory Te Deum, K. 141 will also be performed.
Live Program Notes by Timothy McDonald, Ph.D., begin at 6:15 p.m.
Tickets are $18 per adults and $12 per student or senior adult. Concert tickets are available through the Central Ticket office at 816-235-6222, online or at the performance.
