Choral & Opera
Alice Millar Birthday Concert
Stephen Alltop, conductor; Alice Millar Chapel Choir; Northwestern University Symphony Orchestra; Eric Budzynski, organ
Two musical jewels adorn this year’s Alice Millar Birthday Concert. Joseph Jongen’s epic Symphonie Concertante offers luminous harmonies and blazing climaxes that unleash the full sonic power of organ and orchestra. Haydn’s stunning Missa Cellensis in honorem Beatissimae Virginis Mariae blends stirring choral passages with exquisite solo writing.
