2021 – 2022 Concert Season
A CATHEDRAL CHRISTMAS
Sunday, December 19, 2021 | 5:00pm
Marvin Mills, Organ
Celebrate the holiday festivities with the acclaimed vocal ensemble The Thirteen as they sing carols for the holiday season from the English Cathedral tradition. Said to “transfigure the listener” (The Washington Post), The Thirteen will perform the great and unbroken tradition of English-language carols and anthems, with many of them featuring the majestic Holtkamp organ at Bradley Hills. From 16th century roots through to a new work written for The Thirteen by Indian composer Juhi Bansal, A Cathedral Christmas celebrates the joyful sounds of Christmas choral music full of warmth and joy with the matchless voices of The Thirteen and the King of Instruments!

REMEMBRANCE AND CELEBRATION
Saturday, June 11, 2022 | 7:30pm
Beethoven Piano Concerto No. IV in G Major, Op. 58
Mozart Requiem, K. 626
The Orchestra of the Hills
Bradley Hills Chancel Choir
Choir of the Episcopal Church of the Redeemer with Geoffrey Silver, Director
Brian Ganz, Piano
Matthew Robertson, Conductor
Toward the end of his life, under enormous financial pressures, Mozart undertook one of his greatest endeavors: the composition of a mass for the dead. Left unfinished and later completed by Mozart’s student Franz Xaver Süssmayr, this final masterpiece is “full of power and drama” (Chicago Sun-Times). Paired with Beethoven’s rousing Piano Concerto No. IV in G Major, played by pianist Brian Ganz, this is an evening not to miss! Of Ganz’s playing, The Washington Post writes: “One comes away from a recital by pianist Brian Ganz not only exhilarated by the power of the performance but also moved by his search for artistic truth.” Ganz will play on Bradley Hills’ newly-rebuilt 1904 Steinway B Grand Piano. Join Brian Ganz, the Bradley Hills Chancel Choir, The Orchestra of the Hills, the choir of the Episcopal Church of the Redeemer, exceptional soloists, and conductor Matthew Robertson for a riveting evening of Beethoven and Mozart!
Tickets (In Person and Virtual): $35/25/10 for general admission, students, and children under age 15. $5 off if purchased in advance. This performance will be livestreamed and available On Demand through June 25, 2022.
