Our season concludes on May 30 with Beethoven’s Missa Solemnis. A critic wrote, “To those for whom Beethoven’s music is an important reason for living, the Missa Solemnis belongs at the center of their experience – a work to respect, certainly, but still more to love.” Piotr Gajewski leads the orchestra and chorale along with soloists Esther Heideman, soprano; Shirin Eskandani, mezzo-soprano; Norman Shankle, tenor; and Kerry Wilkerson, baritone, in what Beethoven regarded as his greatest work.
