331 E. South Temple
Salt Lake City
The Westminster Choir, hailed by American Record Guide, as the “gold standard” of American choral ensembles, presents a concert titled “Appear and Inspire – 100 Years of Singing” at the Cathedral of the Madeleine in Salt Lake City on Thursday, January 16 at 7:30 p.m. A free-will offering will be accepted at the concert.
The concert, led by conductor Joe Miller, celebrates the 100th anniversary of the ensemble’s founding in 1920, and it will feature repertoire rooted deep in the Westminster Choir’s history. A highlight will be Benjamin Britten’s Hymn to Saint Cecilia, reflecting Westminster Choir’s spirit and mission as it has “appeared and inspired” thousands of choral musicians over the past century. Other works include Daniel Elder’s O Magnum Mysterium, Frederick Hall’s arrangement of Steal Away, Jake Runestad’s Let My Love Be Heard and Arnold Schönberg’s Friede auf Erden, as well as works by O’Regan, Hession and more.
