Bel a cappella, alongside Musical Director Anthony Pasquill, present a program of contrasts from the modern to the medieval.

Alfred Schnittke’s Choir Concerto is unquestionably one of the choral masterpieces of the 20th century. A setting of devotional poetry by the 10th-century Armenian monk Gregory of Narek, the Choir Concerto is music of staggering depth and range.

Music by David Lang, Felix Mendelssohn and John Cage will also be performed alongside Richard Strauss’ epic composition Der Abend for 16-part mixed choir.
