Concert Review: RPO presents Holst's "The Planets"
"The conclusion of "The Planets," "Neptune," features the most famous of Holst's much-copied musical effects: a small women's chorus sings two chords over and over, gradually fading away to nothing. Concentus Women's Chorus (led by Gwendolyn Gassler) had this deceptively simple assignment, and gave those chords a shivery, glassy sound that I think would have delighted the composer."
Review: RPO ends season with strong program
"The Concentus Women's Chorus, under the direction of Gwendolyn Gassler, contributed an otherworldly element to the already enigmatic final movement of "Neptune, The Mystic.""
