The Hallelujah Chamber Orchestra (HCO) presents a Palm Sunday concert to mark the day nearly 2,000 years ago when shouts of praise welcomed Jesus Christ into the holy city of Jerusalem. Going there, he knew he would soon be condemned to death, only to rise from the dead three days later. HCO conductor John Zhang’s selection of music ranges from the celebratory Rejoice Greatly of Handel’s Messiah to the mournful Adagio for Strings by Samuel Barber, to the hopeful hymn I know that my Redeemer liveth arranged for strings. A string ensemble will anchor the concert with guest soloists Raymond Lee (tenor) and Jessey Chia (soprano) accompanied by pianist Samuel King. The HCO was established in 2019 to promote church music by nurturing young musicians from age 11 in musical excellence and spiritual growth.
