Fresh from a well-received sneak preview of the Choral Society’s spring program at the March 3 MAG benefit concert, the Orcas Choral Society is putting the final touches on its premiere performance of Mozart’s Requiem with orchestra. The show will be at Orcas Center on Sunday, April 21 at 2 p.m. Under the direction of Roger “Wolfgang” Sherman, this spring’s all-Mozart program will also mark one of the very few Choral Society performances accompanied by orchestra. The program features soloists Sharon Abreu (soprano), Kathryn Weld (alto), Neil Jordon (tenor) and Charles Robert Stephens (baritone).
On Sunday, April 28 at 2:30 p.m., the Choral Society will present the same program at Seattle’s Saint Mark’s Cathedral. They have hired a bus for round-trip transport from the Anacortes Ferry landing. The bus tickets will be $20/person; call 376-5382.
