COVID-19 Disrupts Elgin Master Chorale’s Spring Schedule

With the issuance of Governor Pritzker's March 20th Stay-At-Home Order, arts organizations throughout the state have been forced to make difficult choices to protect our audiences, our artists, and all Illinoisans. While we will miss the opportunity to perform these great choral works for the Fox Valley community, we fully stand behind this decision.

Nothing can compare with the emotional connection that audiences experience through a live musical performance. We look forward to once again performing for you, our loyal patrons, in the not so distant future. Stay safe!

Great Romantics: German A Cappella

Sunday, April 19, 2020, 3:30 p.m.
Blizzard Theatre, Elgin Community College

Enjoy a rare evening of German Romantic a cappella music. Composers Johannes Brahms, Josef Rheinberger, and Anton Bruckner looked to the past for inspiration in creating new musical textures and colors. Rheinberger’s ravishing Cantus Missae for double-chorus is a classic example of this florid writing, delivering extended harmonies while keeping a sweet and organic vocal style.  The music of these composers elicits thrilling, profound emotions that places the voices of the Chorale on full display.
