Mozart in March in Crieff!

Crieff Choral Group presents a spring time concert ‘In Praise of Mozart’ on Sunday 26th March at 7.30 pm in Crieff Parish Church starting at 7.30 pm.  A wonderful programme will celebrate the works of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. The concert will open with Ave Verum Corpus, a Eucharistic hymn dating from the 14th century and attributed to Pope Innocent VI, proceeding onto Regina Coeli or ‘Queen of Heaven’, the ancient Latin Marian Hymn of the Christian Church. The popular and much beloved Exsultate Jubilate (Exult, rejoice) completes the first half in style. In the second half, the choir will sing the Coronation Mass in C major, a Missa brevis, written in 1779 when Mozart was court organist and composer at Salzburg Cathedral. This piece became the preferred music for royal and imperial coronations at the Imperial court in Vienna.

We are delighted to welcome four magnificent soloists to Crieff who have all sung with Scottish Opera: Jessica Leary (soprano), Laura Margaret Smith (mezzo-soprano), Ted Black (tenor) and Jonathan Sedgwick (bass). The choir and soloists will be accompanied by the excellent City of Perth Sinfonia with the whole conducted by the choir's Director of Music Peter Rutterford in a celebration of Mozart’s choral music with Perthshire musicians at their very best.

Tickets at £10 each (accompanied under 12s free) can be purchased online at  from 20th February. (Please note that a booking fee will apply for online purchases.) Tickets are also available from Carnelian Crafts in Crieff and Hansen’s Kitchen in Comrie, by phoning 01764 654042 or 655846 or from choir members. 

This celebration of Mozart to herald summer as the clocks change is an evening not to be missed.
