Poulenc: Stabat Mater Project

Click HERE to view Early Bird Subscription prices. Single tickets on sale June 25.

Leo Wanenchak, organ

Elizabeth Vrenios, narrator

Lili Maya & James Rouvelle, artists

This poignant concert is inspired by Special Delivery, a book of poetry by Elizabeth Vrenios. Her work is born of loss and fueled by memory of her son’s passing in the Pan Am Lockerbie terrorist tragedy. In our third collaboration with visual enhancements by MICA, this semi-staged performance pairs a reading of several of these poems with stirring choral music that inspires and provides solace.

Dominick DiOrio - Ode to Purcell

Henry Purcell - Man that is Born of a Woman

Francis Poulenc - Stabat Mater

A commissioned work with text from Special Delivery

J.S. Bach - Fürchte dich nicht, BWV 228

J.S. Bach - Komm, Jesu, komm, BWV 229

The music continues


In times of uncertainty, we often turn to the arts for solace and expression. Choral Arts aims to help our community heal through music during these trying times. To that end, we have launched several new initiatives to keep our singers and audiences connected, such as Music with the Maestro and Masterworks Moments.

These free programs are supported by the generosity of many. If you are compelled to support our efforts, please visit our giving page. Thank you!
