Music on the Hill presents its 17th Annual Summer Chorus with the choral music of Czech composer Antonin Dvorak on Thursday, July 25, 8-9:30 p.m., at St. Matthe’w Episcopal Church on New Canaan Road.

Works will be his Te Deum (Op. 103) and the Mass in D Major (Op. 86), both written in the 1890s as Dvorak turned his eye towards America and his time here. These works are not frequently performed and so provide a special experience for singers and audience alike to explore and celebrate his style and compositions. Strings, brass and timpani will accompany the chorus.

A suggested donation of $20 per person is suggested but not required. For information, email artistic director Ellen Dickinson at ellen@musiconthehillCT.org or call 203-529-3133.
