Mozart, Beethoven, Barber & Lauridsen: Joy, Hope, Peace

October 22, 2021 | Frontyard Festival™, Presented by AdventHealth | Mainstage at Seneff Arts Plaza


Part of our revamped Frontyard Festival™—with twice as many boxes to enjoy live, outdoor entertainment, unique experiences, and great food and drinks. Now through mid-December.



Bach Festival Society of Winter Park's fall concert will take you on an exciting musical journey, beginning with a rarely performed exuberant choral work, "Regina Coeli, K. 127," written by a youthful Mozart, and moving on to Beethoven's widely acclaimed "Symphony No. 5 in c minor."

Samuel Barber’s lushly textured work for soprano and orchestra, "Knoxville: Summer of 1915," is based on the poem of James Agee which expresses a child’s feeling of wonder and loneliness.

And finally, Morton Lauridsen’s "Lux Aeterna" is a work of serenity and hope. Wall Street Journal critic Terry Teachout described the work as “direct, heartfelt, and as sweetly austere as the luminous sound of church bells at night.”

This is a perfect pandemic recovery program to bring joy, hope, and peace. Popular Bach Festival Society guest soloist soprano Mary Wilson joins the Bach Festival Choir and Orchestra.
