About the Grinnell Singers



The Grinnell Singers are a group of people who are highly diverse in terms of their backgrounds, interests, and talents, but who are united in their love of singing and their dedication to the choral art. They perform music from an extremely wide variety of traditions and locales, -- from Brahms to Bluegrass, from Renaissance England to twenty-first century New York. The Singers have completed tours to Finland, Estonia, Russia, the Czech Republic, Romania, Bulgaria, and Turkey. They have produced two recordings, a CD of the complete All-Night Vigil by Rachmaninov (hailed for its “consummate artistry” by Iowa Public Radio host Kurt Snook), and Seeking After that Sweet Golden Clime, a varied collection with Jonathan Dove’s The Passing of the Year as its centerpiece. They have been honored with two ACDA convention invitations. In 2000, the choir’s Baltic Tour included a full a cappella program, as well as another separate concert of Beethoven’s Mass in C and the premiere of John Rommereim’s Utopia with the Prague Radio Orchestra. In 2006, their international tour included an a cappella program with the premiere of a commissioned work by Pulitzer Prize-winnner Steven Stucky, and the Eastern-European premiere of Robert Levin’s completion of Mozart’s Grand Mass in C Minor. In April of 2011, the Grinnell Singers worked with the renowned conductor Simon Carrington during a week-long residency, culminating in a conducting master class and concert. In the spring of 2012, the Grinnell Singers participated in performances of Sacred Concerts, a remarkable work by the great jazz master, Duke Ellington, in collaboration with the Grinnell Jazz Ensemble. They commissioned an extended choral work by Mohammed Fairouz, in a consortium with the Back Bay Chorale and Marsh Chapel Choir in Boston, and Cantori New York. In the 2012-13 season, they continued this exploration of works that blur the lines between traditions, as they presented The World Beloved: A Bluegrass Mass, by Carol Barnett, in collaboration with an outstanding string band from Minneapolis, Monroe Crossing.

The ensemble’s director, John Rommereim is Blanche Johnson Professor of Music at Grinnell College, where he conducts the Grinnell Singers and the Grinnell Oratorio Society, and teaches composition. During the first part of his career, his scholarly work was centered in the areas of Russian choral music and early music performance. In more recent years, he has established a reputation as a composer as well. In 2006, The New York Times praised the “richly expressive” character of his work for voice and piano, Into the Still Hollow, premiered by baritone Thomas Meglioranza and pianist Reiko Uchida at Symphony Space. His choral works have been performed by distinguished ensem- bles across the U.S., including Magnum Chorum, the Princeton Singers, VocalEssence, Voces Novae, The Marsh Chapel Choir, and The Rose Ensemble, for whom he served as 2008-09 composer-in-residence. Mr. Rommereim has composed works for choir with various instruments, and works for voice and piano, guitar, flute, saxophone quartet, and string quartet. His choral/orchestral work Utopia was premiered with the Prague Radio Orchestra and the Grinnell Singers in 2000. He is the recipient of commissions and grants from the National Endowment for the Arts, the American Composers Forum, the Iowa Choral Directors Association, the Iowa Composers Forum, and the Iowa Arts Council. During his early years at Grinnell College, Mr. Rommereim founded a professional early music ensemble, the Baroque Orchestra of Iowa. He performed frequently as a harpsichordist, playing continuo in various chamber ensembles, appearing as soloist in J. S. Bach’s Fifth Brandenburg Concerto, and recording a CD that is available on the Centaur label. His translation of Pavel Chesnokov’s seminal treatise, The Choir and How to Direct It is published by Musica Russica. Mr. Rommereim is also recognized as an accom- plished singer. He has appeared in numerous recitals, and as baritone soloist for choral/orchestral works such as Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony, Brahms’s German Requiem, Verdi’s Requiem, Vaughan Williams’s Dona Nobis Pacem, and Orff ’s Carmina Burana. Last spring, Mr. Rommereim taught a collaborative course for composers, writers and artists, in conjunction with novelist Dean Bakopoulos and artist Lee Running. The course culmina ed in performances of student works by the Grammy-Award winning ensemble Roomful of Teeth. In June of 2014, he traveled to Taipei to collaborate with Theatre professor Craig Quintero and to create an original score for a work based on Wagner’s Das Rheingold. Six Grinnell students traveled to Taipei to pursue Mentored Advanced Proj- ects and to appear alongside Quintero’s Riverbed theatre company in five capacity-crowd performances.

NOTES ABOUT THE CONCERT


This performance includes the Kyrie and Gloria from the Mozart Grand Mass in C Minor. Great Mass in C minor (German: Große Messe in c-Moll), K. 427/417a, is the common name of the last musical setting of the mass by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. He composed it in Vienna in 1782 and 1783, when he was no longer a church musician of the Salzburg Cathedral. The large-scale work, a Missa Solemnis, is scored for two soprano soloists, a tenor and a bass, double chorus and orchestra. It remained unfinished, missing large portions of the Credo and the complete Agnus Dei. We will perform the the Kyrie and Gloria, which Mozart certainly wrote. Here is a sample of the music...



Vesperae solennes de confessore
, K. 339, is a sacred work composed in 1780 by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. It is scored for SATB soloists, SATB choir, and orchestra. It was composed for liturgical use in the Salzburg Cathedral. This was Mozart's final choral work composed for the cathedral. Enjoy these musical samples...



Festival of Forgiveness

24 Hours of Confessions

Details:
Feb. 28, 12:00 am
Festival of Forgiveness, Confession, Penance



Don't need Confession?
The Church is open for adoration and prayer.
Come and pray with us!

Saint John Cantius Church has always been known for it's numerous Confessions, having as much as 500 Confessions every week. Now the parish is privileged to participate in the Archdiocese of Chicago's 'Festival of Forgiveness' which will offer 24 hours of Confessions at 24 churches throughout Chicago.

Across two days the Church in Chicago will offer special opportunities for the celebration of the Sacrament of Penance. The Catholic faithful, especially those who have been away from the sacraments, are urgently invited to come and share in God’s mercy. From noon on Friday, February 27, to noon on February 28, confessions will be available at 24 parishes in Chicago for 24 hours. Click here to see all 24 locations »

This focused time to encounter the mercy of God in our lives is inspired by Pope Francis who called the Church in Rome to a “Festival of Forgiveness,” an annual Lenten observance to embrace God’s mercy. In the Archdiocese of Chicago, we join our Holy Father and local churches throughout the world in their observance of this graced opportunity.

Don't be afraid to go to the Sacrament of Confession, where you will meet Jesus who forgives you. —Pope Francis
