Then & Now 12/14: Master Chorale

On this date in 1997, American choral composer Morten Lauridsen’s “Ave Maria” was premiered by the Los Angeles Master Chorale, with Paul Salamunovich conducting.

You can hear our own Master Chorale on the radio this Friday as we present highlights from their recent holiday concert!  Listen as guest artistic director Doreen Rao leads the Master Chorale Ensemble Singers in an hour of music based on the well-known holiday theme, “how brightly shines the morning star... ” recorded especially for Classical WSMR.  It’s coming up this Friday afternoon at 3:00 and again Christmas morning at 9:00 on Classical WSMR 89.1 & 103.9.
