Park Slope Singers Concert: Haydn's Lord Nelson Mass
This June the Park Slope Singers conclude their 21st season with a rousing performance of Haydn's Missa No. 11 in D Minor, conducted by Ira Spaulding. The only performance of this amazing work will be Sunday, June 8 at 5pm in Park Slope.

Written in 1798, Missa in Angustiis, or Mass in a Time of Troubles, became indelibly linked with Horatio Nelson several years later when Nelson defeated Napoleon at the Battle of the Nile. Now commonly known as Lord Nelson's Mass, it is considered one of Haydn's greatest works.

Making this performance especially memorable will be the inclusion of an orchestra - the first time a full orchestra has performed with the chorus since their performance at Carnegie Hall. The introduction of the triumphant trumpets and soaring strings blend exquisitely with the chorus and soloists in a moving musical experience. 

The Park Slope Singers' performance will take place in St. Augustine Church, a large Gothic building just a few short blocks from the transit hub at Atlantic Avenue / Barclay Center (which is also the terminus for the Long Island Railroad). Tickets are $20.00 with a $5.00 discount for senior citizens and students with valid ID. Tickets can be purchased at the door 45 minutes before the concert or in advance at http://parkslopesingers.bpt.me.

All ticket holders are invited to attend a reception immediately following the concert.
