Program:

This traditional fall concert, bringing together the Amadeus Chamber Symphony and the CSB/SJU Chamber Choir, will also feature CSB/SJU Music Department faculty member Justin Zanchuk, trumpet, in the performance of Jean-Joseph Mouret’s Suite de Symphonies, made very popular as theme music of PBS’s Masterpiece Theatre series.

 Paris – London – Vienna: three great cities with long and distinguished music traditions, playing important parts in the life’s of the composers whose music comes alive in this concert. Mozart composed his 1st Symphony in Paris. Haydn and Mozart are closely connected with Vienna. Handel, Haydn and Mozart spent various portions of their lives in London. Let’s connect some of these dots. In addition to Mouret’s Suite de Symphonies, and Mozart’s Symphonie # 1 (how old was he when he wrote it?) the Amadeus Chamber Symphony will play Haydn’s Symphony # 99 – one of his 12 London Symphonies, and will accompany the Chamber Choir in Haydn’s Te Deum, written for Austrian Empress Marie Therese, and Handel’s Coronation Anthem # 4Let Thy Hand Be Strengthened, written for the coronation of King George II and Queen Caroline.
