San Diego Master Chorale
The 2013 Fall Concert Series of the City of San Diego Public Library is launching a spectacular year of performances to celebrate the new Central Library.
The November 10 event features San Diego Master Chorale (Dr. Gary McKercher, director), performing opera choruses from the Baroque era to the 20th century, with piano accompaniment. “Lost in the Stars” is a program of European and American opera choruses by Purcell, Handel, Verdi, Mozart, Britten, Ravel, Barber, Weill, and Bernstein.
The remainder of the Fall series features prominent local musicians, including Bach Collegium San Diego, Hausmann Quartet with soprano Ann Moss, Jory Herman and Friends (from San Diego Symphony and Art of Élan), San Diego Children’s Choir, and Camarada Trio.
The Library began its Chamber Music Series in the mid-1950s. Critical and popular response encouraged the Library to increase the scope of the series into its present status of a Fall Concert Series and a Winter/Spring Concert Series. These series are made possible by the Friends of Central Library, the San Diego Public Library matching fund program, and public and private donations.
