On Tuesday evening, March 14, 2017, the Red River Chorale will present "Joyful Celebrations," the third concert of its eleventh season, at 7:30 P.M. at Emmanuel Baptist Church in Alexandria.

 The concert features classical music composed by great masters for grand celebrations, such as coronations and joyful religious celebrations.  The Chorale will perform two of George Frideric Handel's "Coronation Anthems,"

composed for the coronation of King George II in 1727. These celebratory works are actually multi-movement classical works that show Handel's tremendous musical versatility.  Also included on the program are Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart's exuberant "Regina Coeli," written in 1779 celebrating Mary, the "Queen of Heaven," and Norman Dello Joio's more contemporary "A Jubilant Song," a work written in 1946 that is the personification of pure joy, adapted from the poetry of Walt Whitman.

 Tickets to "Joyful Celebrations" are $15 for adults and $5 for students.
