Music on the Hill concert features Schubert

The Music on the Hill Summer Chorus performs Franz Schubert's Mass in E-Flat with artistic director Ellen Dickinson, conductor. The concert takes place on Thursday, July 27, at 8 p.m. at St. Matthew's Episcopal Church, 36 New Canaan Road.

The Mass in E-Flat is one of the composer's last major works, rarely performed but filled with the lyrical beauty for which he is admired.

Tickets are $20 in advance, $25 at the door; students are admitted free. Tickets may be ordered online at or reserved in advance at or by calling 203-529-3133.

The Summer Chorus, one of Music on the Hill's four performing ensembles, draws singers from across the region to perform a major choral work each July. This is its 15th year. Dickinson is its founding director.
