A Chorister's thoughts on magic

The second half of our April concert consists of one piece only. Psalm 42 by Felix B. Mendelssohn. It’s brilliant programing. After all the power, glory and majesty of Haydn’s Mass in Bb Major, the second half begins with a single soft melodic line which translates: As the stag screams out for fresh water, so my soul, oh God, screams out to you. By Rosella Crawford-Bathurst

My son is one of your #1 fans

Our younger son is coming out from New York for the weekend [of the Christmas concert]- he is one of your #1 fans and always tries to coordinate his visits with your concerts. Last time he even wrote a letter to the editor in the Sentinel about the Chorale. He always swears that he never hears anything better in NY. Thanks for your great work.

The chorale performs choral works of diverse periods, genres and traditions, both unaccompanied and using professional soloists, instrumental ensemble and orchestra. The Santa Cruz Chorale makes such music accessible to the broadest possible audiences while enabling member singers to experience the delight and artistic growth inherent to sophisticated music-making.
