A performance not to be missed, Mozart’s Coronation Mass (Mass in C Major) is one of the composer’s most popular mass settings and will be led by esteemed conductor Jerry Blackstone!
Grammy Award-winning conductor Jerry Blackstone served as director of Choirs and Chair of the Conducting Department at the University of Michigan School of Music, Theatre & Dance for 30 years. In 2006, he received two Grammy Awards (“Best Choral Performance” and “Best Classical Album”) as chorus master for the critically acclaimed Naxos recording of William Bolcom’s monumental Songs of Innocence and of Experience. The recent Naxos recording of Milhaud’s monumental L’Orestie d’Eschyle, on which Blackstone served as chorus master, was nominated for a 2015 Grammy Award (“Best Opera Recording”).
The concert will also feature the National Children’s Festival Chorus, led by conductor Anthony Trecek-King performing Andrea Ramsey’s But A Flints Holds Fire, Scott Wheeler’s Free Land, Rollo Dilworth’s Trilogy of Dreams, and more. Heralded as “moving” and possessing a “surprising range of dynamics and depth of expression,” Anthony Trecek-King is currently the Artistic Director and conductor of the award-winning Boston Children’s Chorus (BCC). Described as “angelic and dazzling” from the Boston Globe, the youth chorus has earned a reputation as an ensemble of high distinction and in 2013 received the National Arts and Humanities Youth Program award from the White House.
The concert will open with a short performance from the Children’s Chorus of Collin County, led by director Janie Oliver.
