Join Us in Singing

Beethoven’s Choral Fantasy, Op. 80

Cathedral Voices is thrilled to invite local singers and choralists to join the 2024 Spring Festival Concert, singing Beethoven’s Choral Fantasy. It is a stunning piece of music about 20 minutes long. The work opens with a vibrant piano introduction, the orchestra joins in a playful response, and in the last 5 minutes vocal soloists and choir join the triumphant anthem.

We will sing this in German, but do not fear! The Beethoven Chorus web portal will include pronunciation guides to practice with, as well as part-predominant tracks for the choral section. You will have all you need to become very familiar with this beautiful work by May 4th. You may also join us on Tuesday evenings in April (see the schedule below) to practice with Cathedral Voices.

We will sing it in Korean with piano and Korean percussion. Again, the web portal will provide pronunciation guides and part-predominant tracks to learn your part.
