ECHOES: THE CHORAL MUSIC OF RICHARD STOEHR – Hosted by St. Michael’s College Fine Arts Department

Solaris joins musical forces with Counterpoint and Bella Voce choruses to showcase the rarely heard choral music of Richard Stoehr, a highly respected Viennese composer, author, and teacher. Forced by the Nazis to flee Austria in 1939, Stoehr continued his art, first at the Curtis Institute in Philadelphia, and later at Saint Michael’s College (1941-1950), now the repository for his many works including seven symphonies, two operas, choral music, lieder, numerous chamber works and solo piano music, as well as half a dozen widely used textbooks. During his 50-year career as a teacher, his students included Herbert von Karajan, Erich Leinsdorf, Rudolf Serkin, Samuel Barber, Leonard Bernstein and Marlene Dietrich. Solaris, under its Artistic Director Dawn Willis, will perform Stoehr’s magnificent Crossing the Bar and The Great Adventurer, as well as other works together with Counterpoint and Bella Voce choruses.  FREE admission (A collection will be taken to defray the costs of recording the works for release on a CD.)
