Description:

Stephen Alltop, conductor and piano; Eric Budzynski, organ; Alice Millar Chapel Choir and soloists; Alison Wahl, soprano; Northwestern University Symphony Orchestra

Two "crowning" jewels adorn this year's Alice Millar Birthday concert: Joseph Jongen's Symphonie Concertante and Mozart's Coronation Mass. Jongen's epic Symphonie offers luminous harmonies and blazing climaxes that unleash the full sonic power of organ and orchestra. Mozart's sumptuous Coronation Mass blends stirring choral passages and exquisite solo writing. Rounding out the program is Mozart's sublimely beautiful concert aria "Ch'io mi scordi di te," sung by soprano Alison Wahl; Stephen Alltop performs the solo piano part, originally played by Mozart himself.
