"Overflow crowd for Requiem performance on November 2, 2018"

Chorale San Miguel is presenting concerts in large choral format, principally Masses, Oratorios, a cappella works, and choral and orchestral compositions from four centuries.

The Chorale is comprised of a core group of 32 auditioned singers, of whom a significant portion are professional singers, joining forces with talented area volunteer choral singers.

 Auditions will be held periodically to augment the size of the chorus according to programming and performance needs for future concerts. 

 

The Chorale draws on local and regional participants, including Coro de la Opera, Coro Juvenil de Celaya [Conservatory], and orchestra musicians from regional professional orchestras in Guanajuato and Queretaro.

Artistic Director is Malcolm Halliday, with conducting roles shared with Mauro Ledesma of Coro de la Opera

Le Petite Messe Sollenelle

May 9, 2020

Gioachino Rossini's Petite messe solennelle (Little solemn mass) was written in 1863 and scored for choir, opera soloists,  two pianos and harmonium. The composer, who had retired from composing operas more than 30 years before, described it as "the last of my péchés de vieillesse" (sins of old age) but it is a dramatic work which never fails to please, with a decidedly operatic approach to the words of the solemn mass.
