St. Charles Singers, conducted by Jeffrey Hunt, opens its 32nd concert season September 11 with the tenth installment of its Mozart Journey, a multi-year initiative to perform the complete sacred choral music of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.
The St. Charles Singers, with the Metropolis Chamber Orchestra, will present “Mozart Journey X: This Is Our Joy” at 7:30 p.m. on September 11 at Saint Thomas More Catholic Church, 215 Thomas More Drive, Elgin, Ill.; and at 3 p.m. on September 13 at Baker Memorial United Methodist Church, 307 Cedar Ave., St. Charles, Ill.
Music professor Jonathan Saylor of Wheaton College will give a pre-concert talk one hour before each performance.
The St. Charles Singers’ September 11 concert will be the first of its own in Elgin. The choir, accompanied by the Metropolis Chamber Orchestra, will offer Elgin choral music lovers a Mozart Journey concert in 2015, 2016, and 2017, thanks to a three-year, $5,000 annual grant from the Florence B. and Cornelia A. Palmer Foundation. The foundation supports the visual and performing arts in Elgin.
