Annapolis Chorale music director J. Ernest Green closed the group's classical music season last weekend on a triumphant note with two performances of Joseph Haydn's "The Creation." Haydn's 1798 oratorio — scored for soprano, tenor and baritone soloists, chorus and orchestra — tells the story of the six days of creation. During the chorale's performance, it was given a powerful visual dimension through projected Hubble telescope images of Earth. Haydn and Hubble became a harmonious pairing, along with Renaissance masters Leonardo da Vinci and Michelangelo, whose depictions of the creation of man joined hundreds of photos illustrating the infinite variety of human beauty.

The Annapolis Chorale seems to know few limits.The chorus, directed by J. Ernest Green, stretched beyond the usual classical repertoire Friday and Saturday nights to sing the music of George Gershwin and Duke Ellington, joined by the Annapolis Chamber Orchestra and jazz artists Ethel Ennis and Stef Scaggiari. They made wonderful music together.When the first notes of Gershwin's "They Can't Take That Away from Me" sounded, my reaction was "wow!" The chorale, augmented by the string section of the chamber orchestra, had a full and joyous sound.

I think, generally, there is nothing nicer than a cooperative effort that works. Communicating feelings, objectives and goals can be hard, but it is worth while, especially when the outcome works to the benefit of all involved.These thoughts were triggered by the announcement of a cooperative effort by Reynolds Tavern and the Bowie Brass Quintet to benefit the Annapolis Chorale.The quintet will perform at 8 p.m. Saturday at St. Anne's Church on Church Circle in Annapolis. A pre-program dinner will be served at historic Reynolds Tavern.

The Annapolis Chorale's annual "Celebration of Christmas" at Maryland Hall is always a toughie to review in artistic terms because, let's face it, not all that much happens artistically.Barring an act of God, a chorus isn't about to stumble over "Jingle Bells" and "Good King Wenceslas", nor is the same accompanying orchestra going to do itself injury by falling to the ice during Leroy Anderson's "Sleigh Ride".It is enough to say that much lovely seasonal music was nicely rendered by conductor Ernest Green, his singers and players, and particularly by the newly formed Annapolis Chorale Youth Chorus.

"The passions of opera are cold in comparison to those of our church music," wrote a Monsieur Bonnet in an 18th-century treatise on music history.I wonder what he'd have thought had he lived another 150 years to hear the blockbuster Requiem Mass composed by Giuseppe Verdi.For the Verdi Requiem, which Ernest Green's Annapolis Chorale will perform at Maryland Hall for the Creative Arts at 8 p.m. Saturday, is simply the most blisteringly passionate setting of the Roman Catholic Mass for the Dead ever composed.

For years, one group of arts lovers has dreamed of building a "world-class" performance hall in Annapolis. And for just as long, a second group has wanted to renovate and expand the performing arts center the city already has. The future of those dreams may depend on the findings of a feasibility study that the Maryland Stadium Authority is launching this summer. Seeking the best way to support a thriving arts community in Annapolis, state officials have asked Crossroads Consulting Services LLC of Tampa, Fla., to look at options for accommodating local performing groups and their patrons.

Annapolis became a major cultural metropolis this month, thanks to the presentation of two musical masterworks — one by a major 19th-century symphony composer, the other by a major 19th-century opera composer. Both works, which premiered within 20 years of each other, focus on the meaning of life and death. At the U.S. Naval Academy's Alumni Hall on April 19, the Distinguished Artists Series closed with the 39th annual Spring Oratorio. The presentation of Gustav Mahler's Symphony No. 2 featured Aaron Smith conducting the Annapolis Symphony Orchestra, the Naval Academy men's and women's glee clubs, the Goucher College Chorus, and soloists.
