Choral masterpiece


March 21, 1996|By Stephen Wigler

Arthur Honegger's "King David" is among the 20th century's musical masterpieces, and it is among the greatest choral works on an Old Testament theme since the death of Handel.

This heroic oratorio will be performed this Sunday by the Baltimore Choral Arts Society. The concert will open with a panel discussion about musical settings of sacred scripture with Mark Loeb, senior rabbi at Beth El Congregation; Kenneth Melzer, WBJC-FM's opera consultant; and Baltimore Choral Arts Society music director Tom Hall.

The concert is at 3 p.m. Sunday in Kraushaar Auditorium on the Goucher College campus. Tickets are $10, $17 and $21. Call (410) 523-7070.
