4:00 pm Concert
Winifred Smith Hall

Please join us for the final choral concert of the season. Composed in 1798, Joseph Haydn’s Missa in angustiis, or Nelsonmesse, sets the traditional Catholic mass in a way that reflects the anxiety surrounding Napoleon’s growing military ambitions. Chamber Singers will perform this late classical masterwork with chamber orchestra and guest vocalists. Concert Choir will perform Haydn’s exultant “The Heavens Are Telling,” from The Creation, and a selection of music from around the world.

Free admission. Public is welcome.

Shuttle services will begin one hour before showtime and will meet patrons on Level Two (Mesa Road street level) of the Mesa Parking Structure, by the elevator. Advance notice is appreciated, but not required.  For additional information, please call the Arts Box Office (949) 824-2787 or email artstix@uci.edu.  (Schedules are subject to change.
