The Santa Ynez Valley Master Chorale and Orchestra are pleased to announce The Coronation Concert!  After twenty years of bringing music to life, in the Santa Ynez Valley, Maestro Chris A. Bowman will pass the baton.  This will be his last concert with The Santa Ynez Valley Master Chorale and Orchestra.  To bid adieu, the concert will open with ReflectionReflection was the result of a commission from the Shepherd/Hall Trust.  It is an instrumental piece for chamber orchestra, featuring Sally Barr on violin.   Following Reflection, The Santa Ynez Valley Master Chorale will present the Coronation Mass by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.  The Mass was completed, in Salzburg, in 1779, when Mozart was 23 years old and first performed at the Salzburg Cathedral.  As a side note, the Chorale performed in Salzburg on their European tour of 2006.  Soloists for the Coronation Mass are:  Soprano, Jumi Kim; Alto, Sally Rose Bates; Tenor, Adam Bradley; and Bass, Andre Shillo.  A sixteen piece orchestra, with concertmaster Sally Barr, will accompany the Chorale and soloists in this final concert under the beloved baton of our award winning composer, Maestro Bowman.

 The second half of the concert will open with the Mozart Piano Concerto No. 9 "Jeunehomme" in E flat major, – 3rd movement, featuring Vera Kong.  Next in line is Sanctus, also by Maestro Bowman with text adapted by Catalina McIsaac.  Sanctus has been recorded by the Kiev Philharmonic and Chorus with worldwide distribution.  Also, included are three motets by the Romantic composer, Anton Bruckner that he composed when he was the organist at Sankt Florian, Austria.  More music from the Romantic period follows with O Divine Redeemer by Charles Gounod.  The grand finale is the Coronation Anthem by Baroque composer, George Frederic Handel.  The Coronation Anthem has been performed for every coronation, in England, since Handel composed it in 1727 at the age of 42.
