Chorus to perform March 6

Giovanni Pergolesi died at age 26 from tuberculosis.

The Columbus State Vocal Ensemble, under the direction of Gordon Franklin, will perform its Winter Concert at 3:00 p.m. on Sunday, March 6, at the Franklin Park Conservatory, 1777 East Broad St.

The concert will include the chorus, soloists and a string orchestra. Schubert’s “Mass in G” and Pergolesi’s “The Magnificat” will be featured, accompanied by a selection of spiritual hymns and psalms.

During his short life (1710–1736), Giovanni Battista Pergolesi became an accomplished composer, violinist and organist. His “Magnificat” in B-flat is an excellent example of a Baroque Period four-part choral piece. The text of the “Magnificat” is derived from the vespers, or evening prayers in the Roman Catholic Church.

Franz Schubert (1797–1828) was an Austrian composer from the Classical Period. He is well known for his religious works. Schubert’s “Ave Maria” is perhaps one of the most widely known of his works. His “Mass in G” is a four-part choral piece written to accompany the Latin text in the Roman Catholic Church and varies only slightly from the Order of Mass. “Mass in G” is a pristine example of classical liturgical music.

The Gospel Ensemble will present "Paved the Way," the story and song of pioneers who braved societal issues to broaden the path for today's gospel singers. During this program, GVE will travel the streets of yesteryear to pay tribute to the father of gospel music, Thomas A. Dorsey, the queen of gospel, Albertina Walker, and trailblazer Andre Crouch. The concert is free and open to the public.
