The Gonzaga University Choir joins with Incendo music ensemble to perform Monteverdi’s “Beatus vir and Joseph Haydn’s “Mass in Time of War. Haydn composed this Mass as Austria was mobilizing its defenses against Napoleon, and its nickname “Paukenmesse,” derives from the prominent role for drums of war.

The event is free to Gonzaga University faculty, staff and students, and all children under age 12. Admission is $5 for high school students and non-Gonzaga University students, $10 for adults and seniors. Seating is limited, so reserve your tickets in advance.
