Building on the momentum of the first More Music Summer Choral Festival last year, this year's Festival features a gorgeous mass by Schubert as well as spiritual music by Connecticut composer Gwyneth Walker, Harry T. Burleigh, and Edward Thompson. The Festival culminates in a free performance on August 28th at 3 p.m. at St. Thomas More Church in Darien. Kate Remington talks with Festival founders Constance Chase and Galen Tate.

Born in Madison, Wisconsin, Kate Remington joined WSHU in December of 2000, and she's been WSHU's Music Director since 2002.
