The following event notice appears in today’s Modesto (CA) Bee newspaper:
Former Modestan Adrian Wise’s choral work “Isaiah 12” will be performed May 18 by the Sonora Master Chorale in Sonora. The concert begins at 3 p.m. at St. Matthew Lutheran Church, 13880 Joshua Way.
Inspired by the Bible verse “The Lord is my strength and my song,” Wise’s piece is described by the chorale as “a work of strength, joy and quiet, inner delight.”
Wise attended Modesto High School and Modesto Junior College and served as worship minister at Ripon Grace Brethren Church from 1983 to 1987.
The Sonora Master Chorale also will perform Gabriel Fauré’s Requiem. Tickets are $15 at the door, $10 in advance and $5 for children under 12 and are available at Sonora Music and The Mountain Bookshop. For more information, call 984-0704.
