Tickets are now on sale for the Acadia Choral Society’s Spring Concert. The performances will take place on May 11th at 7:00 PM and May 12th at 3 PM at St. Saviour’s Church in Bar Harbor. Luigi Cherubini’s Requiem in C minor and smaller works by Beethoven will be performed by the chorus and an orchestra led by Sascha Zaburdaeva of the Bangor Symphony Orchestra. Music director Jamie Hagedorn says,”Cherubini has the distinction of being Beethoven’s favorite composer, and his dramatic requiem could easily be mistaken for Beethoven. This is a powerful and moving work, and it will be a revelation for people who are not familiar with Cherubini’s music. Tickets are $12 each and are available at Sherman’s Books & Stationery in Bar Harbor, the Northeast Harbor Library, the Southwest Harbor Public Library and the SevenArts gallery in Ellsworth (in the Maine Grind Building). Tickets are also available from chorus members and at the door. For more information please visit www.acadiachoralsociety.org.
