2022 Spring Concert
Rachmaninoff’s All-Night Vigil

Sunday, May 22, 2022

This spring’s concert features our presentation of Sergei Rachmaninoff’s All-Night Vigil, a work that is widely acknowledged to be one of the most stunning works in choral music.

Composed and premiered in 1915, Rachmaninoff‘s choral masterpiece includes settings of traditional liturgical chants of the Russian Orthodox church, as well as original music of unforgettable beauty.

After a long, strange (nearly) two-year odyssey through distancing, lockdown, distancing, and diaspora, we’re thrilled to finally bring this masterpiece to the magnificent acoustic of our home at Judson Memorial Church.  Rachmaninoff’s choral magnum opus—alternately powerful and gentle, mysterious and exultant, is a testament to the power of choral music.
