FORT LAUDERDALE, FL -- The Power of 150 Voices Singing! was the appropriate theme of the Symphony of the Americas' program on Tuesday evening at the Broward Center's Amaturo Theater. Under the artistic direction of Gordon Roberts, the Gay Men's Chorus of South Florida joined Maestro James Brooks-Bruzzese and the orchestra for a vociferous evening of choral music from both classical and popular genres.

The Fort Lauderdale based men's chorus makes a mighty sound. Superbly honed by Roberts, the group's finely blended voices can rouse to full throated perorations or sing caressingly soft vocal lines with acute musicality. Brooks-Bruzzese opened the program with the Hallelujah Chorus from Beethoven's oratorio Christ on the Mount of Olives. Composed in 1801, the oratorio was one of Beethoven's greatest successes but, like the master from Bonn's other religious and secular cantatas, has fallen off the repertoire radar. These works show a more intimate side of Beethoven's wide ranging genius. In sheer fervor and complexity of choral writing, the Hallelujah Chorus prefigures the finale of Beethoven's only opera Fidelio. Brooks-Bruzzese led a rousing performance, the  contrapuntal voicing clear and precise, a testament to the chorus' musical discipline. Read full review at www.fortlauderdaleconnex.com
