John Rutter was born in 1945 in London, and is considered by many to be the pre-eminent composer of choral music of the late 20th and early 21st centuries. Brazos Valley Chorale will have its final concert of the season on May 8, paying homage to Rutter on his 70th year.
The repertoire for the concert will include Gloria, as well as Chorus of the Hebrew Slaves from Nabucco by Guisepe Verdi, Cantique de Jean Raccine by Gabriel Faure, and When the Saints Go Marching In. Guest performances will include the Century Sounds from the Texas A&M University Century Singers.
The concert will be held at Christ United Methodist Church in College Station at 3pm. Tickets are $20 for the general audience and $10 for students. Purchase them online at bvchorale.org or from any member of the Brazos Valley Chorale or at the door.
