Saint Stanislaus Church
Experience the enchanting choral music from Scandinavia in the awesome acoustical setting of St. Stan’s. Familiar music by Edvard Grieg and Jean Sibelius is combined with newer works by Trond Kverno, Waldemar Åhlén, Wilhelm Stenhammar and others. We are especially excited to perform several new works by the up-and-coming young Norwegian composer Ola Gjeilo whose music draws inspiration from film music. Gjeilo’s stunning ‘Dark Night of the Soul’ takes the listener to another world and will be a highlight to the first concert of the season. After the performance join us for wine in the adjacent Polish Heritage Hall to meet friends, greet the performers and welcome new executive director Melissa Payton. Free, gated parking.
