“We are thrilled to collaborate with the Kansas City Chorale and artistic director Charles Bruffy,” says Elizabeth Suh Lane,. “They are a true treasure in Kansas City and I am sure that our audiences will love this musical partnership and the beautiful selections.
The program will include instrumental and choral works by Vaughan Williams, Benjamin Britten, J.S. Bach and the Norwegian-born, contemporary choral composer Ola Gjeilo.
Bach Aria Soloists has partnered with the Kansas City Chorale several times during its 18-year history, most recently during the 2016-17 season with BAS Sings!, which featured four members of the Chorale.
