What does classical crossover singer Jackie Evancho have in common with Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Felix Mendelssohn and Franz Schubert?
Like Evancho, Mozart, Mendelssohn and Schubert were child prodigies on the classical music scene of their day. In fact, they composed some of their most renowned works in their youth.
In April, the Master Chorale of South Florida will present a sampler of these works in concert, accompanied by The Symphonia of Boca Raton.
Selections include Schubert’s hauntingly beautiful Mass in G, composed when he was only 18; Mozart’s thrilling Exsultate, jubilate and ever-popular Ave Verum Corpus, penned at age 16; and three pictoral motets—Ruhethal, Zum Abendsegen and Jauchtzet dem Herrn, by Mendelssohn, who published his first composition at age 13.
In keeping with the theme of youthful talent, the program will be conducted by Brett Karlin, the Master Chorale’s brilliant 27-year-old artistic director. Although Jackie Evancho won’t be present, the concert will feature the glorious voice of 24-year-old soprano prodigy Lauren Snouffer. One of opera’s hottest new stars and recent graduate of Houston Grand Opera Studio, Ms. Snouffer is already singing major roles worldwide. She will perform Exsultate, jubilate and join the chorale as soprano soloist in Schubert’s Mass in G.
