Cantata Singers' 54th season opens with Mozart's Misericordias Domini, Haydn's Symphony No. 80, and the United States premiere of the Missa Divi Xaverii by Czech Baroque composer Jan Dismas Zelenka. Reconstructed from a damaged manuscript three centuries after its premiere, Zelenka's uplifting and optimistic Missa Divi Xaverii features some of his most expressive and lavish music. Concluding the program is Mozart's searching and sorrowful Misericordias Domini, and Hadyn's Symphony No. 80.

William Cutter, Director of Choral Programs at MIT, will give a pre-concert talk, free to all ticketholders, at 7pm in the Keller Room. Following the performance, all are invited to attend a post-concert soirée, held in honor of David Hoose's 35th anniversary as Music Director. **Please note that the soirée is an additional ticketed event.
