The WPI Orchestra and Festival Chorus will give a joint performance at Alden Memorial at 3 p.m. tomorrow, February 25.
The concert will feature three of classical music’s most famous composers: Bach, Beethoven, and Brahms. Among the pieces to be performed will be J.S. Bach’s Cantata No. 140 “Wachet auf” for chamber choir and small orchestra; Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony; and Brahms’ “Schicksalslied” for large chorus and orchestra.
Some members of the Festival Chorus were recently awarded a Grammy in the Best New Age Album category for their participation in the recording of "Miho: Journey to the Mountains" by the Paul Winter Consort. The song “Remembering” was recorded on the campus last year.
The concert is free and open to the public.
