On Sunday, April 24, the Elmhurst Choral Union and Salt Creek Chamber Orchestra will celebrate new beginnings, wonder, and spring at the "Majestic Mozart" concert. It will begin at 3 p.m. Sunday, April 24, in Hammerschmidt Chapel at Elmhurst University, 190 S. Prospect Ave.

Be inspired by Mozart along with Hayden and Ola Gjeilo.

 

The concert features Mozart's Coronation Mass in C Major (with historically accurate Germanic Latin), and Mozart Symphony No 31 in addition to Haydn's "The Heavens Are Telling" from "The Creation" and Ola Gjeilo's "The Ground" from the "Sunrise Mass."

The featured orchestra will be the Salt Creek Chamber Orchestra, and the Elmhurst Choral Union Chamber Singers will make an appearance.

The Elmhurst Choral Union is an auditioned volunteer choir singing choral masterworks of all eras. The choir is celebrating a return to in-person performance.

Tickets are $25, $23 for age 62 or older, and $10 for age 7-22; online service fees apply. Tickets are available via elmhurstchoralunion.org.

In light of recent adjustments to COVID-19 recommendations from the CDC and the state of Illinois, Elmhurst Choral Union will not be requiring mask-wearing at Elmhurst Choral Union concerts or events. Following the new guidance, they will also not be checking the vaccination status of attendees. These are still uncertain times, so Elmhurst Choral Union reserves the right to make any adjustments should they need to be.

Visit www.elmhurstchoralunion.org prior to your arrival the day of the performance in the event there has been a change. Please note that all performers are fully vaccinated.
