Three B's

November 06, 1997|By Jarrett Graver

The Baltimore Choral Arts Society presents its own version of a "Three B's" concert at Goucher College's Kraushaar Auditorium. The 1997-98 season begins with three choral works by Leonard Bernstein, Benjamin Britten and Robert Sirota. Bernstein's "Chichester Palms," with its jazzy style and sly evocation of "West Side Story," is one of his most popular works. Britten's sprawling cantata "St. Nicolas" features a full chorus, orchestra, piano duet, boy choir, tenor soloist, as well as two occasions when the audience joins in the singing. Sirota, director of the Peabody Conservatory, will present the local premiere of his "Motets," a series of biblical texts. The full chorus of the Baltimore Choral Arts Society is joined by tenor Carl Halvorson and the St. David's Church Boy Choir, with guest choristers being conducted by David Riley.

The Baltimore Choral Arts Society's "Three B's" concert will be held this Sunday at 7 p.m. in Kraushaar Auditorium at Goucher College. Take Interstate 695 to Exit 27A. Tickets are $10-$22. Call 410-523-7070.
