Pulitzer Prize winning music this weekend from Metropolitan Chorale of Kansas City

This weekend the Metropolitan Chorale of Kansas City (the Metropolitan Community College district’s premiere singing group, based at MCC-Blue River in Independence, Mo.) shares the stage with UMKC’s Conservatory of Music and Central Seminary’s Institute of Sacred Arts to present music of living Kansas City composers, including  Pulitzer Prize winner Zhou Long. Three ensembles will perform eight pieces, and all eight Kansas City composers will be in attendance to speak about their pieces prior to the performance of each piece. It all happens on Saturday, Oct. 13 at 7:30 p.m. at Grace and Holy Trinity Cathedral (415 W. 13th St. Kansas City, Mo.) for the Metropolitan Chorale of Kansas City’s fall performance.

Chorale director Dr. Rebecca Johnson says “Grace and Holy Trinity Cathedral is stunning, and we are fortunate to have been allowed to perform in the sanctuary… The complexity and degree of challenge posed by the music has been daunting, but the singers have stretched and made good work of it.  It is a unique event that shows an aspect of community college work not often considered.”

Tickets are $6.00 for adults and seniors, $4.00 for children.
