Starkville/MSU Symphony Orchestra “Strings/MSU Chamber Singers”
Feb 19, 2022
First Baptist Church, Starkville-MS
Since 1969, the Starkville-MSU Symphony has provided the greater Starkville area and the Golden Triangle with a true community grown experience of classical music. With the goal of introducing this vibrant genre to an audience reflecting the entire Starkville community, every concert has remained free and open to the public throughout the Symphony's entire 50-year history.
MSU Chamber Singers and the Starkville Symphony-Orchestra will be conducted by Dr. Phillip Stockton, in a performance of Franz Schubert’s Mass No. 2, in G Major, D 167. This work was composed in less than a week in early March 1815 and remains the best known of his three short settings, or missae breves, dating between his more elaborate No. 1 and No. 5. Apart from some passages for soprano, its solistic interventions are modest; Schubert, characteristically, inclines toward a devotional mood.
