If you just come to listen, you will be inspired by the sound of the chorus around you, by arias sung by our professional soprano, alto, tenor and bass soloists, and by our superb piano accompanist, Dr. Kirsten Helgeland.

    Dr. Case will also provide interesting background on the piece in general, and specific arias.
