Called “a true sonic spectacular” by Michael Tilson Thomas of San Francisco Symphony and a “superb symphonic poem” by Opera News. On the 150th anniversary of Berlioz’s death, John Nelson conducts the Shakespeare narrative that the composer deemed “too beautiful, too musical” not to be performed. Venerated bass Eric Owens will portray the central role of Friar Laurence.

Bryan will join the Berwick Chorus of the Oregon Bach Festival for this spectacular festival ending finale!

Palestrina: Master of All

Praised and imitated by his contemporaries and revered throughout the centuries, Giovanni Pierluigi da Palestrina crafted some of the greatest a capella music of all time. Jouyssance devotes an entire concert to this contrapuntal master, presenting not only his most beloved motets, but also the sumptuous Missa L'homme armé à 5.  Although he is long associated with the Catholic Church, Palestrina had a rarely seen secular side, which Jouyssance will explore with a selection of his madrigals.
