FULL ENSEMBLE WITH THE COLORADO WIND ENSEMBLE
St. Martin’s teams up with the Colorado Wind Ensemble, David Kish director, in a performance of Anton Bruckner’s rarely heard Mass No. 2 in E minor (for winds, brass and chorus). The world premiere of a work with the same instrumentation by Daniel Kellogg, commissioned by the two ensembles to a text by Walt Whitman, will crown the concert with historical significance. On their own, St. Martin’s will sing Terry Schlenker’s “Into Paradise” and William Harris’s “Faire is the Heavnens;” and the Colorado Wind Ensemble will play the Suite Française by Francis Poulenc.
