The Missouri Choral Artists are a group of professional musicians dedicated to artistic excellence in choral music. The newly developed MCA model features an ever-evolving selection of the finest choral musicians and conductors from across Missouri and the surrounding region. The ensemble convenes for a weekend of rehearsals and events that culminate in a presentation of choral music of the highest caliber. MCA will present its first full season of concerts across the state of Missouri, beginning on Sunday, July 16th at 4:00pm in the Chapel of Mercy Hospital in Springfield, MO. Chris Brammer is guest conductor for the concert, entitled “Singing for Mercy”, and featuring a variety of choral music ranging from the polyphony of Palestrina and lush harmonic texture of Rachmaninoff, to the choral classics of Byrd and Vaughan Williams. As part of the group's mission of outreach and benevolence, the entire concert will be broadcast to all patients throughout the hospital, and a significant portion of the proceeds will be donated to the Mercy Foundation.
Tickets range from $10 – $17: $10 for the concert alone, or $17 for the concert at Mercy Hospital and a reception following the performance downtown at the Hotel Vandivort.For information visit https://www.facebook.com/mochoralartists/ and click on "Events," or http://www.themissourichoralartists.com/upcoming-events.html.
