The chorus contains singers from 30 states as well as Canada, Singapore, Denmark and Chile. The performance consists of Mozart’s “Requiem” (Latin) and Bach’s “Magnificat” (Latin). Tickets are available for $15-$35 from the Green Music Center box office or by calling (866) 955-6040. Go to www.GMC.sonoma.edu for more information.
Weill Hall’s concert venue has drawn national attention since its opening in September 2012, with The Huffington Post calling it, “One of the most remarkable performance spaces in the country.”
Santa Rosa Symphony Executive Director Alan Silow said, “The Green Music Center was first conceived by local community and university leaders who were also choral singers. Weill Hall is the result of their vision – an acoustically superb, world-class venue that provides a very special experience for audiences and musicians alike. The SRS is delighted to participate in the Berkshire Choral Festival’s ‘Hear the Voices of Summer’ concert.”
