Maestro Barry Hemphill guides the 100-voice Metropolitan Chorus through stirring vocal performances, opening the chorus’s 45th season with "Music to Move the Soul." The century of trained crooners will join forces with skilled musicians to take on Will Todd’s Mass in Blue, a 2003 composition that layers a Latin mass over jazzy melodies in the style of Virgil’s early beat poetry. Soprano Linda Maguire’s high notes soar as saxophonist Irvin Peterson bends bluesy notes and pianists’ fingers fly across keyboards against harmonies ringing through the church’s towering ceilings. The conductor’s waving hands cue musicians through rousing crescendos, hushed diminuendos, and commands to steal second, and audiences relax in comfortable pews on the ground floor or lean forward to catch the action from tiered seats in the mezzanines.
