Spring Concert May 20 2023 at 8PM
The Concord Chorus, under the direction of Dr. Kevin Leong, presents Joseph Haydn’s “Maria Theresa Mass” on May 20, 2023, 8 PM, at St. Camillus Church, 1185 Concord Turnpike, Arlington, MA. This soaring and lyrical work for chorus, solo quartet, and orchestra, is the fourth of Haydn’s six monumental Late Masses. Although its nickname may refer to the iconic Habsburg Empress Maria Theresa, it more likely derives from her granddaughter and namesake Marie Therese, a great musical patron who received a copy of the Mass from Haydn himself. From the work’s stately opening to its gentle close, Haydn infused his “Maria Theresa Mass” with exceptional warmth and great power.

75th Anniversary Video
Founded in 1945, the Concord Chorus performed its first concert in the spring of 1946 as a memorial to those lost in World War II. Reaching its 75th Anniversary in 2021, the Chorus found itself unable to perform to live audiences because of the devastating COVID pandemic. Because everyone was facing isolation and loss, the Concord Chorus produced this video to tell its story by connecting audiences to its deep roots in community, regional, and national life and history, to showcase its mission to offer high-quality choral masterworks from diverse periods, and, most importantly, to create joy from adversity by sharing the unifying power of beautiful music with everyone.
