Here the story behind the Mozart Journey idea from Jeff Hunt,
Jonathan Saylor, Kay Kendall, and Robert Boyd.
We are eager to share our joy of singing with you during St. Charles Singers’ 2015-16 season! The variety of music will please you, yet you’ll discover a special element that unifies this year’s performances. Our choir is honored to be the recipient of a precious memorial gift, a Klop positiv organ used to accompany the singing of 16th to 19th century classical compositions. The organ was built for St. Charles Singers in the Netherlands during the past year. It has recently arrived and will be featured in each of the 2015-16 season concerts. We can’t wait for you to hear St. Charles Singers accompanied by this remarkable instrument!
The Season will include three performance projects:
This is Our Joy opens the season with Mozart Journey X. Compositions by Johann Ludwig Bach (cousin of JS Bach), Orlando Gibbons and Mexican composer Manuel de Zumaya have been specifically chosen by Music Director Jeff Hunt to compliment the music of Mozart.
