The Year of the Pig

Befitting its title, the second concert of the Saint Louis Chamber Chorus’ season explores man’s relationship with…well…the pig! The music ranges from Renaissance complaints about a pig’s sanitary habits to the more modern “Words of the Sun” by the Chinese-American composer Zhou Long, who won the Pulitzer Prize for music in 2011. Also featuring an entire mass by Orlandus Lassus fashioned from a ribald chanson about avoiding pork, it will certainly be the first St. Louis performance of this rarity. Another highlight will be the world premiere of “In The Land Of Song” from British composer and long-time Chamber Chorus friend Sasha Johnson Manning, which explains how Dong-Po (braised) Pork was accidentally invented.

Enjoy exploring the Link Auditorium from distinguished St. Louis architect Theodore Link and sampling pork-themed nibbles during the intermission. You don’t want to miss this unusual opportunity.
