Rodehorst Performing Arts Center, 7700 Clocktower Drive, Kirtland, 44094.

The chorus, directed by Leonard DiCosimo, will be joined onstage by members of the Lakeland Civic Orchestra.

Mass No. 2 in G major was composed by Austrian composer Franz Peter Schubert in 1815 and is the most widely known piece from his shorter mass compositions. He was a prolific composer of songs, operettas, duets, quartets, symphonies and scores for plays. Schubert is credited with bridging Classical and early Romantic eras as well as marrying poetry with music.
