Virtual concerts set at Mount Angel Abbey

May 2021 Posted in Other

The Willamette Master Chorus will perform Spring Concerts, Sacred Music on Sundays, May 2 and 16 at Mount Angel Abbey. The concert will be made available to stream online.

While the chorus cannot participate as a large group in the church, they are able to capture some incredible sounds at this beloved site. 

Accompanist Debra Huddleston will join the WMC by pre-recording on the great organ in the gallery and the choir loft’s smaller organ. 

The program includes a new arranged spiritual by David Schmidt entitled The Morning Trumpet, Father Teresio Caldwell playing In dir is Freude (In Thee is Gladness) by Johann Sebastian Bach, the women of the chorus will perform Laetatus Sum, a haunting piece by Sister Mary John Sevin, and founder/conductor Dr. Wallace Long returns to the chorus to direct the men in a rousing arrangement of Rise Up, Ye Saints of God by Kenneth Jennings. 

Concert times are 3 p.m. To watch go to www.willamettemasterchorus.org. Following the concert dates, audience members can return to view the concert on the Willamette Master Chorus YouTube page at any time.
