We stand corrected. Schola Cantorum concludes its 50th anniversary season with a Grand Finale Concert, scheduled 7:30 p.m. this Saturday (May 17), not Friday, as published in the print edition. The concert is being held at First Congregational Church of Palo Alto, 1985 Louis Road. A reception featuring wine and cheese is slated 6:45-7:15 p.m.
According to Executive Director George Alexsovich, the program will include compositions selected by Music Director Gregory Wait, highlights from past maestros and the world premiere of “Song – Gatherings,” a commissioned work by emerging composer Eric Tuan. The concert, dedicated to the more than 650 alumni of the chorus, will feature works by Royal Stanton, Schola Cantorum’s founding director.
The concert will conclude with a community sing.
Tickets are $25 in advance, $30 at the door, with discounts for groups. Attendees 25 and under are free.
