Go on—just try to find a more joyous, entertaining, all-around mood-lifting work in the choral-orchestral repertoire than Franz Joseph Haydn’s oratorio The Creation! Since the OCWC and our award-winning friends Men in Blaque (Joseph Huszti, Artistic Director) are both celebrating the 20th anniversaries of our own “creations,” we’re combining forces to bring you a full-scale performance of this most cheerful of masterworks. We’ll sing the work in English and feature a full orchestra and a trio of stunning soloists: Harriet Fraser, soprano; Jon Lee Keenan, tenor; and David Stoneman, bass-baritone. “The heavens are telling” you that you won’t want to miss this one!
