OPCC remains dedicated to performing varied and exciting music. The Oak Park Concert Chorale spring concert spans seven hundred fifty years with a cappella choral music from six nations. One of the highlights will be “Befiehl du deine Wege” by Johann Christoph Altnickol. Altnickol was a German composer and organist who studied composition with and was highly regarded by J. S. Bach, even marrying one of Bach’s daughters. Contrasting settings of the “Kyrie” by Machaut, Hassler and Vaughn Williams show the evolution of musical interpretation of this text through the ages. A selection of Renaissance and Baroque madrigals and motets will round out our musical history tour. We hope you will be able to join us for this evening of luxurious and inspirational choral sounds.
