Concord Chorus performs Haydn’s “Lord Nelson Mass”

May 19, 2018 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Nine Bedford residents sing with the Concord Chorus – Anne Bickford, Barbara Carvey, Philip Carvey, Birgit de Weerd, Juanita Healy, Alfred Healy, Ken Hekman, Allen Marshall, Liz Megerle.

Join them and the entire Concord Chorus, now in its 72nd season, for Joseph Haydn’s “Lord Nelson Mass.” Known also as the “Missa in angustiis,” Haydn composed this dramatic masterpiece “in troubled times” as a powerful response to a turbulent world. The program will also include Haydn’s beautiful and rarely performed “Ave Regina coelorum” for soprano, chorus, and strings and sublime motets by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Ludwig van Beethoven, and Johannes Brahms.

Kevin Leong conducts the 110-voice Concord Chorus and a professional orchestra on Saturday, May 19, 2018, at 8:00 PM at the Church of St. Brigid (1981 Massachusetts Avenue) in Lexington, Massachusetts. The concert features a superb quartet of Boston-based soloists: soprano Teresa Wakim, mezzo-soprano Julia Soojin Cavallaro, tenor Charles Blandy, and baritone Thomas Jones.

Tickets are $30 for general admission, $25 for seniors, and $10 for children and students and can be purchased online at or over the phone at (978) 254-1551. Ample, free parking is available behind the church.

Founded in 1945, the Concord Chorus performs two concerts of choral-orchestral and smaller works each season. The repertory of the Concord Chorus encompasses music from the 16th century to the present. For more information, please visit
