The Women's Choir will perform music by: Gustav Holst, a late-romantic composer best known for his work "The Planets"; Thomas Tallis, a British Renaissance composer whose sacred vocal music for the Anglican church is still widely performed; and Johann Sebastian Bach, the German baroque composer whose masterworks for organ and choir are known throughout the world. They also will perform Mulholland's "Heart" and will conclude the concert with a gospel piece featuring Grimshaw on the "djembe," a west African drum.
