You can be the first to see and hear how this new work gets put together for our Gala Celebratory Spring Concert! This is a free open rehearsal at 8 pm on Wednesday, February 18th. The 50th Anniversary Concert will also feature Vivaldi's Gloria, and James Bassi's 4 Latin Psalms, entitled Laudate Domine.
