A Royal Banquet

The University of California Alumni Chorus invites you to "A Royal Banquet" featuring the music of Kings: David, Solomon, Babylon's Nebuchadnezzar and Belshazzar, Jesus, and Henry the VIII. Texts and music used as early as 973 A.D. for the coronation of King Edgar will be included. The main course of the evening will be Belshazzar's Feast by William Walton, one of the most exciting pieces of music written in the last 100 years.

The performance will be Sunday, December 6th, 7:30 pm at Hertz Hall on the UC Berkeley campus. Conducted by Dr. Mark Sumner, Director of the UC Choral Ensembles, the concert will feature massed choirs, baritone soloist Hadleigh Adams, full orchestra, and guest artists the singers of Perfect Fifth, the select Cal student ensemble.

Tickets are available online at brownpapertickets.com.
