Oak Park, IL, - March 29, 2013 -  The Oak Park Concert Chorale (OPCC), conducted by director Paul Lindblad, will present A cappella Joy on Sunday, April 21, 2013 at 4:00pm, at  Grace Lutheran Church, 7300 West Division Street, River Forest, IL.

OPCC remains dedicated to performing varied and exciting music.
The Oak Park Concert Chorale spring concert spans seven hundred fifty years with a cappella choral music from six nations. The  concert features many Medieval, Renaissance and Baroque era compositions.
 
One of the highlights will be “Befiehl du deine Wege” by Johann Christoph Altnickol. Altnickol was a German composer and organist who studied composition with and was highly regarded by J. S. Bach, even marrying one of Bach’s daughters.
 
Contrasting settings of the “Kyrie” by Machaut, Hassler  and Vaughn Williams show the evolution of musical interpretation of this text through the ages.
 
A selection of Renaissance and Baroque madrigals and motets by Gasparini, Peurel, Gallus, Weelkes, Josquin and Passereau will round out our musical history tour.
 
We hope you will be able to join us for this evening of luxurious and inspirational choral sounds.
