Enjoy a remarkable evening of music as Texas Performing Arts presents the The Choir of St John’s, Cambridge, in concert with the University of Texas Symphony Orchestra (UTSO) and the University of Texas Festival Youth Chorus. The 250-voice Festival Youth Chorus consists of young choristers from Austin area schools, churches, and area choirs.

The program includes acappella performances and a presentation of Mozart’s brilliant Coronation Mass performed by the St John’s College Choir and the UTSO. The program by the all-male choir, all choral scholars at St John’s College, will include well-known American standards and a joint performance by The Festival Youth Chorus and orchestra.
The Choir of St John’s College, Cambridge, is one of the finest collegiate choirs in the world – known and loved by millions for its recordings, broadcasts and concert tours. Under the direction of Andrew Nethsingha, the choir performs a broad spectrum of choral music that spans some 500 years. The choir has a distinguished tradition of religious music and, since the 1670s, has maintained a College Choir whose main duty is singing the daily services in the College Chapel.

Works by: Lassus, Stainer, Parry, Mozart, Copland, Mendelssohn, and Britten.
