The Twin Cities Catholic Chorale is pleased to announce its 47th season in residence at the Church of Saint Agnes in St. Paul. In the next few weeks, the great classical Masses of Mozart, Beethoven, Dvorak and Schubert will be part of the repertoire, all accompanied by professional musicians many of whom play with the Minnesota Orchestra. This is a unique program where the music is sung not in a concert hall, but in a church as the composers intended.
One of the early highlights of our season is Fauré’s Requiem which will be performed for All Souls’ Day, Monday, November 2nd at 7:30 p.m.
Under the direction of Dr. Marc Jaros, the Chorale’s Demi-Chorale sings every Sunday at the 10:30 a.m. Latin High Mass from October through Pentecost. All are welcome to attend Mass at this acoustically fine Baroque structure modeled after the Stift Schlagl, a monastery church at Aigen, Upper Austria, which reflects the Austrian and Bavarian origins of St. Agnes’ founding families. In 1955, Monsignor Richard J. Schuler founded the Chorale as it is known today, at the Church of the Nativity in the Highland area of St. Paul. In forty-seven years the Chorale has had only three directors: Monsignor Schuler Dr. Robert L. Peterson, and Dr. Marc Jaros.
