Hudson Chorale Concert at Maryknoll in Ossining “Hudson Chorale Goes Classic”
January 25, 2020 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm
Beethoven, Haydn and Mozart—Glorious music in a glorious space Hudson Chorale is pulling out all of the big guns of the classical period for its upcoming concert. The group will begin its 2020 season with two matinee concerts on Saturday, January 25, at 3:00 pm and Sunday, January 26, at 3:00 pm that feature works by Haydn, Beethoven and Mozart, complete with professional orchestra and soloists. What better place to experience their glorious music than at the magnificent and inspirational Queen of the Apostles Chapel at Maryknoll, 55 Ryder Road, Ossining, NY. Haydn’s Mass in Time of War (German title: Paukenmesse or Kettle Drum Mass), is derived from the use of the timpani during parts of the performance. Beethoven was just beginning to work towards the same level of mastery in composition than Haydn when he composed his Mass in C Major. Even so , their masses are starkly and refreshingly different Mozart’s Ave Verum Corpus is an example of how just a few bars of music can produce a profound spiritual and emotional impact on both the musicians performing it and the audience listening to it. It simply cannot be performed too often. Music Director Maestro Ira Spaulding is a choral conductor, singer and master class instructor whose career spans 41 years of performance in more than 60 countries. He is currently Professor of Vocal and Choral Music at City College of New York and maintains a career abroad as a singer, teacher and conductor. Assistant Music Director David Baranowski, a household name to singers and audiences in the Westchester area due to his virtuosity on piano, keyboard, organ and harpsichord, will provide the organ accompaniment for the concert. Following the concert, the audience is invited to an informal reception to meet and chat with the conductor, soloists, orchestra and chorus members while enjoying some delicious refreshments, a long-standing Hudson Chorale tradition.
