The Charlotte Chorale, the largest community choir in Charlotte County, accompanied by a select group of symphonic musicians, will perform an outstanding selection of masterworks by five monumental composers covering a span of over three hundred years. Each an innovator in his own time, JS Bach, Ludwig von Beethoven, J Brahms, Leonard Bernstein and Burt Bacharach, were responsible of some most powerful music throughout the centuries. Each with his own distinct style, their music is still revered today with its intricate complexity, captivating melodies, and interweaving vocals. The concert will include Bach's "Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring", Brahms' "How Lovely is Thy Dwelling Place" from "German Requiem", "Hallelujah Chorus" (Christ on the Mount of Olives) by Ludwig Von Beethoven, and the dynamic "Gloria in Excelsis" composed by Leonard Bernstein for the Bernstein MASS for the 1971 opening of the John F. Kennedy Center for Performing Arts in Washington DC. Other masterwork selections will also be included by the same composers. Moving forward to a more contemporary composer of the twentieth century, the music of Burt Bacharach will be highlighted in the second half of the performance with many familiar songs such as "Do you Know the Way to San Jose," Raindrops Keep Falling on My Head," and "I Say a Little Prayer for You."
