The Kalamazoo Symphony Orchestra.  In January, the KSO teams with the Bach Festival Chorus to present “Te Deum Laudamus” by the outstanding Latvian composer Ugis Praulins.
2006: The BACH FESTIVAL CHORUS is the core of the Kalamazoo Bach Festival with a membership of 60 to 70 singers who share a love of great music. The Chorus employs five lead singers who also serve as Bach Festival soloists. The rest of the Chorus is made up of volunteers who come from the entire Southwest Michigan area. Many members of the Chorus maintain active schedules as soloists in churches and other venues throughout the community. Others are simply brought to the Chorus by their love of music. The choir performs two to three concerts a year: the annual BachFest Christmas! concert, the Bach Festival Finale concert held each year during Bach Festival Week in April, and occasionally a third concert in the winter. The Bach Festival Chorus has performed major choral works of J.S. Bach and composers indebted to his legacy, from Mendelssohn, Mozart, Brahms and Haydn to more modern composers such as Rachmaninoff and Bernstein. The Chorus has collaborated with the Kalamazoo Symphony Orchestra, under Maestros Yoshimi Takeda and Raymond Harvey, to present works by Shostakovich, Brahms, Mozart, and Orff, as well as the North American premiere of Latvian composer Ugis Praulins’ stunning Te Deum Laudamus.

"The concert went wonderfully, and the piece we sang "Te Deum" by Latvian composer Ugis Praulins has grown on me, but the hours spent in the Alto section are enough to drive a girl insane." Catherine TUESDAY, JANUARY 24, 2006
