KUHF's Elaine Kennedy appears at The Bay Area Chorus of Greater Houston Major Works Concert.
Houston, Texas--Elaine Kennedy, KUHF Morning Show host, will appear as a special guest at the2011 Major Works Concert presented by the Bay Area Chorus of Greater Houston. Accompanied by a professional orchestra, the Bay Area Mixed Chorus and the Bay Area Women's Chorus will perform at 7:30 pm on February 7 at Gloria Dei Lutheran Church, 18220 Upper Bay Road, Nassau Bay, TX 77058. Tickets are $10 in advance. At the door, tickets are $15 for adults and $12 for students and seniors 65+. Tickets may be purchased by visiting the "purchase tickets" section of the BAC website, www.bayareachorus.org, by calling the BAC hotline, 281.326-1286 or from any chorus member.
Ms. Kennedy and members of the Chorus Advisory Board will be honored at a post-concert reception for performers and members of the audience. Refreshments will be provided by Mediterraneo Market and Cafe, featuring "Flavors of the Mediterranean".
The BAC Mixed Chorus will perform a concert favorite, the Schubert Mass in G. In contrast, a rarely-performed work, the Rheinberger Mass in A, will be presented by the BAC Women’s Chorus. Both Schubert and Rheinberger represent the 19th century romantic point of view as expressed in philosophy, literature, visual art and music: individualism, emotionalism, and subjectivity. Following the tradition established by earlier master composers, Rheinberger and Schubert accepted the challenge of setting the Catholic Ordinary of the Mass for concert, rather than liturgical, purposes, resulting in these significant contributions to the choral repertoire.
Now in its 46th season, The Bay Area Chorus has grown to be a Houston-area choral institution. During the 16-year tenure of Musical Director Keith Dixon, the group has expanded to include a Women's and Mixed Chorus. Both have exhibited a high standard of musical excellence in performances throughout metropolitan Houston. Additionally, the Bay Area Chorus has an extensive outreach program showcasing school, church, community and university choirs as guest performers. The Bay Area Women's Chorus is honored to be invited to perform at the state convention of the Texas Choral Directors Association in San Antonio on July 30, 2011.
