Chorale, Orchestra to perform Beethoven's music

Chorale, Orchestra to perform Beethoven's musicThe Kingwood Chorale and Chamber Orchestra (KCCO) will present Beethoven’s thrilling and powerful “Mass in C” on May 6 at 7:30 p.m.

Known as “The Man Who Freed Music”, Beethoven’s powerful music is filled with personal emotion that had changed the way people listen to music. KCCO invites the greater Lake Houston community to hear his majestic music live in the beautiful sanctuary of Strawbridge United Methodist Church in Kingwood.

“Beethoven’s music will take you on an emotional ride through powerful brass and string sections to sublimely soft lyrical sections,” said Dr. Todd Miller, KCCO conductor.

The concert will feature the 80 voice Kingwood Chorale, a 29-piece professional orchestra, and professional soloists including Ben LeClair, bass, an audience favorite.

“This music reaches out and grabs you and almost forces you to listen,” Miller said. “The music is as fresh today as when it was premiered 200 years ago.”

Ben LeClairThe concert will also feature guest artist Matthew Caporale, pianist, playing the Mendelssohn First Piano Concerto with the orchestra. The entire concert is 75 minutes long. Tickets are $20 for general admission and $15 for seniors and students. Tickets may be purchased at Local Print Solution in Kingwood, at www.LHMAS.org or at the door.
