First Saint Paul’s is delighted to once again host the Chicago Choral Artists on Saturday, October 20th at 7:30 p.m. They open their season with collections of a cappella music that explore how humanity experiences the passing of time. The program begins with the Rene Clausen's beautiful setting of Tonight Eternity Alone, and features Samuel Barber's Reincarnations and Irving Fine's grippingly reflective song cycle, The Hour-Glass.
The remainder of the program features works by John Corigliano, Eric Whitacre, Gustav Holst, and Dominick Argento.
Chicago Choral Artists, formerly known as the James Chorale, is an ensemble of talented musicians who have been presenting innovative music to Chicago audiences for nearly 40 years. They perform under the artistic direction of Michael D. Costello. For many years the James Chorale was under the direction of James Rogner, former music director at First Saint Paul’s.
You can purchase tickets online or at First Saint Paul’s before the show. Ticket prices are $25 for adults, $20 for seniors and $10 for students. Download a parking pass to park for free just two blocks west of the church in the Franklin School lot on W Goethe St.
