Classical Music Alert: Wisconsin Chamber Choir performs Saturday night | November 20, 2009

By Jacob Stockinger

I try to be comprehensive in my local listings for classical music performances.

But I am not aware of all the groups and their concert schedules, and it seems some of the gorups are not aware of me — yet.

So on Wednesday in my Best Bets for the coming week, I inadvertently left out the noteworthy performance by the Wisconsin Chamber Choir (below) this Saturday evening, Nov. 21, at 7:30 p.m. in the  Trinity Lutheran Church on Madison’s near east side.

That’s too bad for me and too bad for them.

Whenever I have heard them, the WCC, which was founded in 1998, has been a top-notch performer. I have no reason to doubt that it will turn in another winning concert with this well planned program under the direction of Robert Gehrenbeck, who is also the choral director at the UW-Whitewater.

Here’s a link with more information about time, location, tickets (advance and at the door), CDs, staff and members and notes about the “Bacchus” program, which includes a tribute to Haydn on the occasion of the 200th anniversary of his death as well as music by Brahms, Copland and Kodaly:

My apologies to the Wisconsin Chamber Choir go with my hope they have good attendance and a successful performance.

If you go, let us know how they did.

The Ear wants to hear.
