Stabat Mater by Antonín Dvořák
Sunday, April 6 at 4:00 p.m. TICKETS
Offered for the first time in Abendmusik’s 41-year history, Antonín Dvorák’s Stabat Mater poignantly and dramatically portrays a mother’s sorrow, standing beside her son at the foot of the cross. Known for its intense expression, romantic lyricism, and profound emotion, Dvorák’s music draws us towards a more meaningful encounter with Jesus’ suffering and death. The Abendmusik season culminates with this once-in-a-lifetime performance, gathering together the hearts and voices of the Abendmusik Chorus, Doane College Choir, Nebraska Wesleyan University Chorus, and soloists Kendall Reimer, Rebecca Shane, Drew Duncan, and Jeff Keele, all accompanied by the Abendmusik Symphony Orchestra. A compelling message of hope shines through this heart-rending musical journey to the glory of paradise and the promise of resurrection.
