Featuring the Mass in G Major, some of the most moving music ever written for solo, chorus and orchestra, the La Canada Presbyterian Church will present a special All Saints Schubert Concert on October 17 at 2 p.m. in the church located at 626 Foothill Blvd, La Canada. The concert celebrates All Saints Day and features the La Canada Presbyterian Church Chancel Choir and LCPC Orchestra. Featured soloists are Rebecca Sjöwall, soprano, Matthew Thomas, tenor, and Gregory Geiger, bass. Conductor is Jack Lantz, LCPC’s Director of Music & Worship Arts.
All music is by the first great romantic period composer, Franz Schubert. The centerpiece of the program are two contrasting and musically very moving works, Mass in G Major and Stabat Mater in G minor, for chorus and orchestra.
The concert will also include Schubert’s familiar settings of “Ave Maria,” “Serenade,” and Erlkoenig,” plus familiar marches and songs. As has become the custom with LCPC concerts, the program will be multimedia with accompanying slides of great Renaissance art illuminating the Requiem texts, as well as video underscoring musical themes. In addition, as part of the All Saints theme, accompanying some of the music will be a photo tribute to recently deceased members of LCPC congregation.
Prior to the concert, Jack Lantz will present a lecture on Franz Schubert and his music in the church sanctuary at 1:30 p.m.
The concert will be held in the sanctuary of La Canada Presbyterian Church, 626 Foothill Blvd, La Canada, CA 91011. There is no cost for admission.
