Concerts@First presents “Digging Up Old Bones”
Missa Solemnis in C (Joseph Senn 1810-1882) for Choir, Orchestra, and Soloists.
Joseph Senn was the great, great, great grandfather of Director of Music and Organist Andrew Senn. Andrew spent more than a year searching for the music of Joseph Senn, and he was able to Missa Solemnis at the University of Tübingen in Germany; it was a large scale work for choir, orchestra and soloists. Over this past summer, Andrew took on the laborious task of creating a modern performing edition from the original parts. On November 11th at 7 pm the choir with many friends, along with an orchestra of 22 players will bring Joseph Senn’s Missa Solemnis to life in a concert celebrating Andrew’s 40th birthday!
This concert will also conclude our Concerts@First fundraiser, and will be a ticketed event. There will be a celebratory reception following, where Andrew will have copies of the original parts on display. Tickets will be available for $10 in advance from the church office, or $15 at the door.
On-street parking for the concert will be available.
