Our Next Event

The centerpiece of our next concert is Schubert’s delightful G major mass, an early work in the late classical style of Mozart with hints at Schubert’s future Romanticism. The mass was written in just 6 days in 1815, one of Schubert’s most prolific years when, while working full-time as a school teacher, the eighteen-year-old composer completed his second and third symphonies, two Masses, a string quartet, two piano sonatas, four Singspiele, and 145 songs (including the Erlkönig), among other works.

To accompany the Schubert Mass Phoenix Choir musical director, Amy Moore, has curated a complementary selection of short Romantic pieces all to be performed by the choir, soloists and the Kanimbla quartet. This eclectic program reaches across the Romantic era from Schubert, Brahms, Mendelssohn and Grieg to Saint-Saens, Stanford and Sullivan.

Mendelssohn’s Ave Maria, Brahms’ Geistliches Lied and Saint-Saens’ Deus Abraham all combine choir and soloists for maximum effect. And there will be an a cappella selection sung by the Phoenix Chamber Choir.
