  • The Beethoven Missa Solemnis is a major orchestral and choral work composed by Ludwig van Beethoven from 1819 to 1823. The Missa Solemnis Alliance represents many of the very best in our community and beyond, coming together in celebration of the 250th anniversary of the birth of Beethoven. Musicians are comprised of organizations all across the Panhandle area. This includes Chamber Music Amarillo, the Amarillo Symphony, Amarillo Master Chorale, Panhandle PBS, West Texas A&M University, Wayland Baptist University, Amarillo College, and First Baptist Church of Amarillo. We celebrate the Panhandle Spirit as we present this incredibly challenging work, rarely done as the forces needed must give an enormous effort asked by Beethoven. The ongoing preparations began in 2018 and are being captured in a Panhandle PBS documentary about what our Panhandle community is capable of artistically. As this work has never been performed here, this is a once-in-a-lifetime experience in Amarillo, Texas. It will amaze you and make you proud of the extraordinary talent in our community. Don’t miss this incredible work, a piece described by Beethoven as “the greatest music I have ever written.”
