Spring concert: Saturday, April 20, 2024, dress rehearsal Friday, April 19, 2024.
Verdi: Messa da Requiem

We will be accompanied for this performance by the Cal Arte Ensemble. Verdi’s Requiem is true to the operatic form Verdi excelled in, with great dramatic contrasts, soaring solos, blaring trumpets and thumping bass drum; there’s never a dull moment!

Season Finale: Concert date TBD, tentatively early June, 2024
Bruckner Mass No. 1 in D minor, WAB 26
Selections from Tour Music (TBD)

This concert will showcase a large work of Anton Bruckner, whose 250th anniversary is in 2024. In addition, we will perform some selections from the music SJSC will sing on tour during the summer of 2024. More details will be forthcoming soon, including details about necessary music purchases.
