Oberlin Conservatory's Musical Union, under the direction of Gregory Ristow '01, will perform in Finney Chapel! This concert is free and open to the public! ABOUT THE ENSEMBLE: Founded in 1837, the 140-voice Oberlin Musical Union is the second-oldest continuing choral tradition in the United States. Only Boston’s Handel and Haydn Society, founded in 1815, represents a longer ongoing tradition. This group performs the great works for chorus and orchestra. Recent presentations include Lauridsen’s Lux Aeterna, Orff’s Carmina Burana, Haydn’s Creation, Ravel’s Daphnis et Chloé, Brahms’ Ein deutsches Requiem, Verdi’s Requiem Mass, Poulenc’s Gloria, and Beethoven’s Missa Solemnis.
