The West Jersey Chamber Music Society will take its audience on a musical trip to a City Called Heaven, a concert April 14 at the First Presbyterian Church of Moorestown.
The West Jersey Orchestra and Chamber Chorale, under the baton of Music Director Joel Krott, will perform works by Europe's finest liturgical composers as well as American folk hymns including African-American spirituals – with a rousing climax of English composer John Rutter's “Te Deum.” Augmenting the singers will be the Teen Chapel Choir of First Presbyterian Church.
Such composers as by Andrea Gabrieli, Gounod, Faure and Whitbourn have been inspired to capture the delight and majesty of the City of God as described in Scripture. Their music will share its joy and hope.
The concert begins at 7:30 p.m. in the sanctuary of the First Presbyterian Church, located at 101 Bridgeboro Road, in Moorestown.
Tickets, available online at www.wjcms.org or by check mailed to the church, are $24 or $18 seniors and students. Children are admitted free. Tickets will be on sale at the door.
