Heroes come in different forms. Sometimes they are persons who inspire our life’s work, as Bach, Mozart and Mendelsohn inspired Josef Gabriel Rheinberger. A prolific composer, Rheinberger’sMassin C Major, op. 169, harkens back to an earlier time in structure and sound. On Saturday, April 21, 3pm at St Luke’s Episcopal Church, the Prescott Chorale, under the direction of Dennis Houser, presents INSPIRING MUSIC: Heroes and History, along with a 38-piece orchestra and featuring the 2nd annual Prescott Chorale Young Artists Competition winners.
The Chorale also performs Memorial by Rene’ Clausen which is based on subject material reflecting the events of September 11, 2001, in New York City.
