The 100 voice Berkshire Lyric Chorus follows up the success of last year’s Brahms German Requiem with another program for large chorus and full orchestra: Bruckner Mass no. 3 in f minor, Brahms’ Nänie and Arvo Pärt’s Da Pacem Dominum. The majestic Bruckner Mass is a staple in Europe but more rarely performed in the U.S. It was written just before he began to composes his epic symphonies.
Berkshire Lyric is a community of choruses where singers ages six to eighty-six explore the world of beauty through the choral art.
Founded in 1963 and now led by artistic director Jack Brown, Berkshire Lyric continues to explore a wide variety of great music for chorus. We believe that the sung word is the language of the heart and has a unique power to transform both the singer and the listener. We live in a world of great spiritual hunger, and choral music has a unique power to move one’s spirit.
While making great music together, we bring people together: young and old, professional and amateur. We try to demystify the great world of classical music, believing that this is music for all of us.
