To Be Certain of the Dawn / Stephen Paulus
     with Louisville Youth Choir

Israel in Eqypt (excerpts) / G.F. Handel

Congregation Adath Jeshurun / 3:00 pm
2401 Woodbourne Avenue

Pre-concert program:  2:15 pm

To Be Certain of the Dawn is a memorial oratorio originally commissioned  in 2005 by the Basilica of Saint Mary in Minneapolis as a gift to Temple Israel synagogue in commemoration of the 60th anniversary of the freeing of Holocaust survivors.  Composer Stephen Paulus and librettist Michael Dennis Browne created an expansive work that includes cantor, soloists, and a children's chorus in addition to a mixed chorus and orchestra.  It raises eternal questions of humanity, tolerance and respect while cautioning that the prevention of such horrors rests in the hands of today's youth. 

Handel's magnificent oratorio, Israel in Egypt, is characterized by virtuosic choruses that fully exploit his lavish and sophisticated aural imagery.  It is a dramatic telling of struggle and freedom through the Exodus as reflected in biblical texts.

Zadok the Priest / G.F. Handel

Great Mass in C minor, K. 427 / W.A. Mozart

Organ Concerto in G minor / Josef Rheinberger
     featuring Dr. Phillip Brisson

Calvary Episcopal Church / 3:00 pm
821 S. 4th Street

Pre-concert program:  2:15 pm

The four Coronation Anthems were composed by Handel in 1727 for the coronation of King George II. One of these anthems, Zadok the Priest, features robust orchestration and is often used in royal weddings, coronations, and film.

The Great Mass in C minor is Mozart's last musical setting of the mass.  It is a large-scale work composed in 1783 that embodies the pomp and solemnity associated with the Salzburg traditions of the time.

Rheinberger's second Organ Concerto is exhilarating in a live setting.  It masterfully pairs the organ and orchestra in lyrical themes and rhythmic profiles that are both compelling and emotionally fulfilling.
