Tampa, FL-The GRAMMY-nominated Professional Choral Institute will present A Concert of Masterworks including works by Johann Sebastian Bach, Felix Mendelssohn, Johann Pachelbel, and
more, on June 22nd at 7:30pm St. Boniface Church in Sarasota and on June 23rd at 7:30pm at the USF Concert Hall at the USF School of Music. Free admission will be offered on a first come, first
served basis for the June 22nd performance. Tickets for the June 23rd performance are $5 and are available online at the following link: http://bit.ly/PCIconcert
A Concert of Masterworks will feature three of Bach’s motets-Jesu, Meine Freude; Singet Dem Herrn;
and Lobet Den Herrn-each a thrilling display of vocal fireworks. Joining these masterpieces will be two of Felix Mendelssohn’s most brilliant a cappella choral works: Richte Mich Gott and Denn Er Hat
Seinen Engeln. Rounding out the program will be Pachelbel’s Jauchzet Dem Herrn for double choir, as well as motets by Tomás Luis de Victoria, Heinrich Schütz, and Josef Rheinberger. The concerts
will be led by Seraphic Fire’s Patrick Dupré Quigley, and will feature the up-and-coming choral conductors of the Professional Choral Institute.
Two free public masterclasses will be given at the USF Concert Hall on June 18th and 20th, 7pm-
10pm. Both masterclasses focus on choral conducting. Dr. James K. Bass and Patrick Dupré Quigley will offer their insights to students as they lead both Seraphic Fire and the Professional Choral Institute
ensemble in the works of Bach, Mendelssohn, Schütz, and Pachelbel.
Last year’s collaboration between Seraphic Fire and the USF Professional Choral Institute, a recording of Brahms’ Ein Deutsches Requiem, was the only American choral project to be nominated
for the 2012 Best Choral Performance GRAMMY Award.
