For the second time, St. Pius V will welcome the University of Chicago Motet Choir for a soaring musical performance at 7:00 pm on Saturday, January 24, 2015 in the church at 1901 S. Ashland Ave. in Chicago’s Pilsen neighborhood.
“The performance last year was magnificent,” said Fr. Brendan Curran, OP, St. Pius V pastor. “We look forward to the same glorious music this year.”
UC Motet choir is the premiere choral ensemble at the University of Chicago. A strong grounding in the music of the Renaissance forms the foundation for a distinctive approach to a cappella masterpieces of all cultures and time periods. They have promised to perform some selections of Renaissance music from Spain and Latin America as well as some selections by contemporary composers.
The concert is a free community service of the UC Motet Choir. Donations are gratefully received. Light refreshments will be served in the parish hall following the concert.
