Westminster Choir in Concert: Listen


Byline: Grace United Methodist Church

The Westminster Choir, conducted by Joe Miller, will present a concert titled "Listen" on Tuesday, January 9 at 7:30 p.m. at Grace United Methodist Church,

300 East Gartner Road in Naperville. Advance tickets are $12 Adults, $10 Seniors 65 and up, $5 students at www.peopleofgrace.org/concerts.

The program is centered on Frank Martins Mass for Double Choir, one of the great masterworks of the 20th centurys a cappella repertoire. Described by Martin as a matter between him and God, the mass remained on his desk for 40 years after he completed it in 1926. Since the first performance in the Netherlands in 1962, it has grown in popularity among lovers of fine choral music. The audience will be introduced to another sound world with a performance of GyAaAaAeA rgy Ligetis Lux Aetern written in 1966 and made famous in Stanley Kubricks film 2001 A Space Odyssey.

The choir will also perform two works with themes of peace written by Westminster composers: Little Lamb by Joel Phillips and Peace Song*, composed for the Westminster Choir by Tim Brent. Other works on the program are by Edward Bairstow, Nilo Alcala and Randall Thompson.

Reflecting on the programs title "Listen," Maestro Miller says, "Listening to the human voice has great power to connect people from differing creeds and backgrounds. It allows us to understand in a way that can be difficult to describe. In a time when our society seems to be focused on our differences, I hope that this concert and this music will encourage the audience to take a moment to be still and strengthen our ability to listen." A podcast of Dr. Miller previewing the program is available on Apple Podcasts and at www.rider.edu/westminsterchoir. …
