Our 2021-22 season ended with a fabulous performance at the Central Congregational Church ,which resulted from a collaboration between the Chorus and the Knox-Galesburg Symphony.
The Chorus began the concert by performing Leonard Bernstein's Chichester Psalms, along with an accompaniment of organ, harp and percussion.
Following this performance, the Chorus was joined by the Monmouth College Chorale and Concert Choir, a 20 piece orchestra and professional soloists, Penelope Shumate and Lucas Wood. This group of over 100 voices performed Gabriel Faure's Requiem in D minor, op. 48.
Our guest concert featured the Augustana Choir, conducted by Dr. Jon Hurty. This concert, performed at the beautiful First Lutheran Church in Galesburg was absolutely stunning, featuring over 40 singers and soloists.
In the fall of 2021, the Chorus was thrilled to present its first concert since the pandemic began. Although there were fewer voices than normal, the music was absolutely beautiful and uplifting. The Chorus performed Dan Forrest’s Requiem for the Living and Ola Gjeilo’s Luminous Night of the Soul. The was the Galesburg premiere of both pieces, and was performed at the First Lutheran Church in Galesburg.
