CONTRA COSTA CHORALE- FALL CONCERT 2012
The Contra Costa Chorale presents its annual fall concert entitled HALLELUJAH! This concert explores the ways various composers have set the word “Hallelujah” in choral literature spanning from the time of Baroque composer Henry Purcell to Canadian composer and poet Leonard Cohen. Of course no concert based on this theme would be complete without the singing of the “Hallelujah Chorus” by Georg Friedrich Handel. Other composers include Jean Berger, Felix Mendelssohn, Randall Thompson, Aaron Copland, Martin Shaw, and Ralph Vaughan-Williams.
