Joseph Haydn: Mass in Time of War, and, Beethoven: Symphony No. 9, 4th movement
Cascia Hall Performing Arts Center – Tulsa
Jan. 30 at 7:30 p.m.
This concert features timeless classical choral masterworks that continue to speak to the drama of the human spirit and the urgency for inner and outer peace. In 1796, Joseph Haydn composed what would be one of his most innovative compositions, his Missa in tempore belli, or Mass in Time of War. The most often performed work in the 24-year history of the Tulsa Oratorio Chorus is Beethoven’s “Choral Symphony,” Symphony No. 9. This concert presents the final choral movement of the symphony, which is a masterpiece unto itself built around Shiller’s “Ode to Joy.”
