The Choir of Trinity Wall Street has joined The English Concert, a world-renowned London-based Baroque orchestra, on a whirlwind tour of several American and European cities. Performing Georg Frideric Handel’s Theodora, the choir and orchestra sang in Sonoma and Orange counties, California, in late January before traveling to Chapel Hill, NC. The tour will continue on to Birmingham and London, in the United Kingdom, and Paris, with one stop in New York February 2 for a concert at Carnegie Hall.
On Wednesday, the choir made an extra stop in Chapel Hill at The Chapel of the Cross, the home church of choir member Molly Quinn. There the choir performed the works of Wood, Britten, Schutz, Stanford, Vaughan Williams, Bach, as well as music by conductor Julian Wachner.
Reviews of the concert have been glowing, and Trinity's choir has been singled out. Joshua Kosman of the San Francisco Chronicle said, “Yet some of the evening’s most powerful singing came not from any of the soloists, but from the superb Choir of Trinity Wall Street, directed by Julian Wachner. By turns reflective and explosive - and marked throughout by finely blended choral textures - the group's contributions helped the performance reach its summit.”
