FROM READERS: Columbia Chorale to put on 'Mini-Majors: Shorter Works of Major Importance'

Friday, March 2, 2012 | 4:12 p.m. CST

Kim Naguit is a member of the Columbia Chorale. She is the head of the publicity committee but will not be performing in this concert.

As the saying goes, "Good things come in small packages." On Saturday, March 17, the Columbia Chorale will put this saying on display with their next concert, "Mini-Majors: Shorter Works of Major Importance." Conducted by Artistic Director Marci Major, the chorale will be accompanied by Glenna Johnson, pianist, Rochelle Parker, organist, and a select quartet of string players from the 9th Street Philharmonic Orchestra.

Selections include Magnificat in C Major by Giovanni Battista Pergolesi, Missa brevis Sancti Joannis de Deo (Little Organ Mass) by Franz Joseph Haydn, Rejoice in the Lamb by Benjamin Britten, 3rd Organ Sonata by Felix Mendelssohn and Little Fugue in G Minor by J.S. Bach. The concert will showcase the beauty and grandeur of classical and choral music in smaller, but no less important, works.

The concert is at 7 p.m., March 17th in the sanctuary of Missouri United Methodist Church, at the corner of Ninth and Locust Streets in downtown Columbia. Tickets are $20 and can be purchased at or at the door the evening of the concert.

The Chorale is looking forward to putting on a splendid show on the 17th.
