The Choral Society of the Hamptons will celebrate the change of seasons with “Trumpeting Spring,” a program of five compositions from the Renaissance to the 21st century, on Sunday at 5 p.m. at the East Hampton Presbyterian Church. Led by a guest conductor, Walter Klauss, the singers will be accompanied by the South Fork Chamber Ensemble Brass Quartet.

The program will open with “Jubilate,” which was written by Bruce Saylor, a contemporary American composer, for the soprano Jessye Norman. Giovanni Gabrieli’s “In ecclesiis,” a motet published posthumously in 1615 and arguably the composer’s most famous work, will follow.

The program will continue with Claudio Monteverdi’s “Magnificat,” the conclusion to his 1610 “Vespers for the Blessed Virgin,” “Gloria” by Bob Chilcott, a contemporary British composer, and Mr. Saylor’s arrangement of “Ode to Joy.”

Thomas Bohlert will accompany the singers at the organ, as will the members of the brass quartet: Christopher Scanlon and Charles Clausen on trumpet, and James Dissinger and Justin Comito on trombone.

If purchased from the society’s website, tickets are $30, $10 for those 18 and under, and $75 for preferred seating. At the door the cost is $35, $15, and $77. A post-concert reception will be held at the restaurant at the Maidstone Hotel in East Hampton at 6:30. Tickets are $100 at the door.

Led by Mark Mangini, its music director, the choral society is an auditioned chorus that has performed high-quality choral music on the East End since its founding in 1946 by the late Charlotte Rogers Smith.
