VOCAL | 'Cathedral Classics'


If your favorite sound is that of a large chorus singing in a cathedral-like space, Rochester Oratorio Society has the concert for you this Friday at the grand surroundings of Asbury First United Methodist Church. The group's 100 voices, led by Eric Townell, will join in Maurice Duruflé's Requiem (with soloists Eric Kesler, baritone, and Judith Prenzlow, mezzo-soprano); Louis Vierne's "Solemn Mass"; Mozart's "Regina Coeli"; and Henryk Gorecki's "Totus tuus," a hymn to the Virgin Mary written in 1987 for Pope John Paul II. For the concert, ROS will be joined by members of the East High School Choir and accompanists Duane Prill and Kevin Nitsch.

Rochester Oratorio Society will perform "Cathedral Classics by Request" on Friday, April 20, at Asbury First United Methodist Church, 1050 East Avenue. 7:30 p.m. $25 general; $15 seniors; $10, students.;
