* Final Installment of the UE Department of Music Online Concert Series

For our final installment of the UE Department of Music online concert series, we present the UE University Choir and Mixed Choir under the direction of Professor of Music, Dennis Malfatti in their performance of the monumental Theresa Mass by Joseph Haydn. Along with UE’s choirs, this massive choral/orchestral masterpiece features soloists soprano Andrea Drury (head of vocal music for EVSC), soprano Alanna Keenan (Associate Professor of Music), tenor Benjamin Smith (Adjunct Instructor of Music), and baritone Eric McCluskey (Assistant Professor of Music) along with a chamber orchestra made of both UE students and faculty.

Written in honor of his patron’s wife, Haydn’s Theresa Mass is a multi-movement setting of the Catholic Latin mass featuring triumphant choruses, lyrical arias, and virtuosic symphonic writing. This piece along with Haydn’s other choral-orchestral works from this period set the stage for the choral-orchestral works of Beethoven, Schubert, and Brahms among others.
