Stravinsky and Renaissance Motets June 25, June 26 2016

Hello Friends,

By now we hope you have your tickets to this weekend’s concert, which includes Stravinsky’s “Mass” and Renaissance motets for choir and wind instruments.

Earlier this week, our Artistic Director, Christian Grube, was interviewed by Scott MacClelland.  Mr. MacClelland interviewed Dr. Grube about his early life, influences, and how he came to be the Director of the Santa Cruz Chorale. The following link will take you to the article:

The Chorale members are busy this week in final rehearsals in preparation for one of the more complex and difficult concerts we have attempted. Behind the scenes work includes fine-tuning the dynamic ranges of each work, balance between the Monterey Bay Sinfonietta and the Chorale voices, placement of the singers and instruments for the double- and triple-choir compositions, among other details. 

The work we do brings great pleasure to  ourselves and our Maestro, of course, but its greatest goal is to bring our good efforts to you, our audience.  We are looking forward to sharing the results with you this weekend!
