First Church Festival Chorus: Schubert & Pergolesi

Presented by Resonance @ First Church Berkeley

First Church Berkeley Festival Chorus

If those whom the gods love die young, then both Franz Schubert (1797–1828) and Giovanni Battista Pergolesi (1710–1736) must have been especially beloved. In a much-anticipated return to live singing, the 80-voice First Church Festival Chorus will sing two gems accompanied by orchestra: Schubert’s Mass No. 2 in G major, composed when the composer was 18; and Pergolesi’s Stabat Mater, written during the composer’s final illness. Extending a historical tradition of rearranging the Stabat Mater, the Festival Chorus will sing a new four-part edition of the work, expanded from its original setting for two soloists.

First Church Festival Chorus members: Full registration details will be available in fall 2021.

Masks and proof of vaccination currently required.
