Friday, Nov. 8 (7:30) & Saturday, Nov. 9 (8. p.m.)
Maryland Hall for the Creative Arts
with
The Annapolis Chorale, Annapolis Chamber Orchestra and Guest Soloists Caitlin Vincent, Chris Dudley, David Merrill
and Nathan Wyatt.  Read more about them here.

The Annapolis Chorale’s 170 voices take to the stage accompanied by the Annapolis Chamber Orchestra for Dona Nobis Pacem.   This creative mix of familiar and new music includes Leonard Bernstein’s “Chichester Psalms,” Gabriel Faure’s Requiem and Latvian composer Peteris Vasks’ Pater Noster.”  A modern era composer, Vasks is often quoted on his strong belief that music (especially choral music) and poetry have been huge unifying factors in his native country’s fight for independence and a national identity.  Soloists joining the Chorale for this concert are soprano Caitlin Vincent, tenor David Merrill, countertenor Christopher Dudley and baritone Nathan Wyatt.

Just added to the program is Tomaso Albinoni’s “Adagio” and the “Air” from JS Bach’s Suite no. 3 in D Major.  Both are among the most popular classical music around but are not often performed live.  This is your chance to hear the Annapolis Chamber Orchestra led by J. Ernest Green do just that!
