Choral Arts returns to Grace Episcopal Church at 3:30 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 6.

All are welcome to join Choral Arts for some of the most beautiful devotional pieces in the classical repertory and modern reflections on Mary in an exquisite selection of work.

Hear Palestrina’s “Alma Redemptoris Mater,” Mendelssohn’s “Ave Maria,” and Grieg’s “Ave Maris Stella.” These stunning works are complemented by the more contemporary Pärt’s “Magnificat,” and Paulus’ “Splendid Jewel.”

Choral Arts will also perform world premieres by Rick Asher and John David Earnest, and pieces by Seattle composers Melinda Bargreen and John Muehleisen. Special guest tenor soloist Ross Hauck will also sing Schubert’s “Ave Maria.”

General admission is $23; tickets for 65 and older are $18. Students will be admitted for free.

Visit www.choral-arts.org for more tickets and more information.

A pre-concert conversation is at 3 p.m. Come early and join artistic director Robert Bode along with composers Earnest, Muehleisen and Asher for a provocative discussion aims to engage the audience and reveal the influences which shape some of the works being performed.
