Friendship

Celebrating its 63rd season, the St. Louis Chamber Chorus opens with “Friendship,” a concert featuring music written by and for friends. Audiences will enjoy music by Franz Schubert as well as the iconic “Mass in G Minor” for double choir by Ralph Vaughan Williams. The “Mass” was composed for Vaughan Williams’ close friend, Gustav Holst. Holst in turn arranged six English folksongs for his friend, William Gillies Whittaker. The choir will close the circle with performances of two choruses, one by Whittaker himself and the other by Rebecca Clarke, a contemporary and friend of Vaughan Williams.

The highlight will be a world premiere specially commissioned by friends for Alice Sherwood, who sang with the Chorus for many years. The composer, Latvian Eriks Esenvalds, has emerged as one of the world’s leading choral composers, enjoying commissions around the globe. Esenvalds will travel to St. Louis to hear the first performance, and is certain to receive a friendly welcome.
