Kingwood Chorale and Chamber Orchestra to present music by Mozart
- Written by
The Kingwood Chorale and Chamber Orchestra will open its 24th season with one of the epic musical works in human history-Mozart’s dramatic and beloved “Grand Mass in C Minor, K. 427.” The 70-voice Kingwood Chorale, joined by a professional orchestra and stellar soloists, will present this work in Kingwood for the first time in a dozen years. This performance will take place Oct. 20 at 7:30 p.m. at the Kingwood United Methodist Church. “It is a unique work of Mozart’s output in that he was not commissioned to write it, rather he wrote is as a work of personal devotion. Some of his most glorious music flows forth in the Grand Mass,” said Dr. Todd Miller, artistic director and conductor. “It is a not-to-be missed concert for music lovers of all ages.” The concert lasts 80 minutes with no intermission and will also include the first movement of Mozart’s Symphony #40 and also his final choral motet, “Ave Verum Corpus.” A star-studded quartet of soloists will also participate, including soprano Laurie Lester (Houston Grand Opera), German-born mezzo-soprano Sonja Bruszauskas, tenor John Weinel, and baritone Michael Vaughn.

Season tickets are also available for purchase. The Kingwood United Methodist Church is located at 1799 Kingwood Drive.
