The Sacramento Choral Society and Orchestra will give one of its “Stained Glass Concerts” — featuring sacred music in a sacred space — on Saturday, Oct. 26, at 8 p.m. in Fremont Presbyterian Church, 5770 Carlson Drive in Sacramento.

On the program will be an Organ Concerto in B-flat by G.F. Handel (from his Op. 4 set, published in 1738); a setting of “Ave Maris Stella,” a 12-minute piece written in 2001 for soprano, chorus and mixed orchestra by British composer Cecilia McDowall; and the “Missa Cellensis,” also known as the “Mariazellermesse,” a lively and popular piece composed by F.J. Haydn in 1782.

The conductor will be Donald Kendrick, and the vocal soloists will be Yoo Ri Clark, soprano; Amy Stevens, mezzo; Matt Hidalgo, tenor; and John Martin, bass. Ryan Enright will be the organist.

Tickets are $35 reserved, $25 general and $12.50 for students, available online at http://www.sacramentochoral.com, by phone at 916-536-9065 and at the door.
