The DuPage Chorale, under the direction of Lee R. Kesselman, with the DuPage Chorale Orchestra, will return to live concert performances with "From the Heart" on Sunday at the McAninch Arts Center's stage.

"DuPage Chorale was the first music ensemble to perform at College of DuPage and, with the exception of a performance break beginning in Spring 2020 due to COVID-19 protocols, has performed continuously since approximately 1969," Kesselman said in a news release. "Throughout that time, we have had many memorable concerts, but I am particularly excited about this concert as our first full live concert in nearly two years. With that in mind, we've selected works to entertain and celebrate this happy occasion."


The performance will begin at 7:30 p.m. in the Belushi Performance Hall on the campus of the College of DuPage, 425 Fawell Blvd. in Glen Ellyn.

Guest vocalists soprano Jennifer Barnickel-Fitch, tenor Ace Gangoso, and bass-baritone David Govertsen will be featured in the Schubert Mass in G major and in the Canadian songs. Pianist William Buhr will accompany the Chilcott's "Songs My Heart Has Taught Me" and the Canadian songs.

Tickets are $17, $15 (senior) and $7 (student with valid ID). Masks are required for all visitors to the MAC. For tickets or more information, visit AtTheMAC.org or call (630) 942-4000.

The box office is open from noon to 6 p.m. Tuesday through Sunday, and one hour before a performance.
