The sound of Mozart’s Great Mass in C Minor will fill Seattle’s Benaroya Hall when 75 singers from the Vashon Island Chorale join members from the Sacred Music Chorale and Northwest Chamber Chorus in a spring concert at 2 p.m. Sunday at Benaroya Hall.

Under the leadership of Maestro Mark Adrian, the 250-member combined chorus will be accompanied by island soloists Jennifer and Andrew Krikawa and the Sammamish Symyphony Orchestra.

This is the chorale’s second performance at Benaroya Hall, and like the previous concert, each chorus will present its own short program.

Vashon pianist Linda Lee and violinists Karin Choo and Gaye Detzer will join the chorale to perform Edward Elgar’s “The Snow,” Morten Lauridsen’s “Dirait-on” and the premiere of Bronwyn Edward’s “Strawberry Kisses,” under the direction of the chorale’s artistic director Gary Cannon.
