STOCKTON - The Stockton Chorale will bring a celebration of music by and about women who are Saints, Queens and Mothers on Nov. 2 and 4.

This celebratory concert will include the Chorale singing Purcell’s “Ode to St. Cecilia”, the patron Saint of musicians, Haydn’s sublime and ethereal “Salve Regina” and Alice Parker’s “God is Seen”. These are fabulous and uplifting works. 

The Stockton Master Chorale will join in celebrating Saints, Queens and Mothers, singing Maia Aprahamian’s “Zechariah’s Prophesy” alongside Leanne Aharja Veitch’s “Black-eyed Susan”. They will also bring us works by Fanny Hensel, Karen Tarlow and Bela Bartok.

The November concert program will also include the Stockton Youth Chorale to showcase the talents of our community’s youth. Featured works include “Many in One” by Alice Parker, “When Children Sing” by Mary Goetz, and “Dodi Li” by Nira Chen, an Israeli song to be sung in Hebrew.
