If you're a singer with a sense of adventure, join Elmhurst Choral Union at 1:00 to learn sacred choruses by Beethoven, Handel, Haydn, Mendelssohn, and Brahms in a single afternoon rehearsal, then perform them.
If you're not a singer, come for the 4:00 performance and meet the singers afterwards.
Can conductor Scott Uddenberg beat the clock to prepare the work in less than 3 hours?
