Announcing our Spring Concert Series, 2020
Due to the Covid-19 virus outbreak, we ask that you please check back in early April for important updates about the timing of our planned spring concert series.
We are very pleased to announce our 11th season of concert performances in the northern Shenandoah Valley region, including Front Royal, Winchester, Millwood and Manassas.
The April concert series, titled "Into Eternity", explores a wide range of exciting choral repertoire expressing many different outlooks on eternity. What will it be like? What will happen there? Music from the Renaissance and nineteenth century will contrast American folk songs, Gospel Blues, and new works by contemporary composers as they explore these questions. The music ranges from jubilant, majestic, surreal, introspective, rhythmic and sometimes downright raucous! Arvo Part's "the beatitudes" serves as the anchor for this collection of repertoire. Other composers include William Byrd, Charles Stanford, Hubert Parry, David Conte, Carol Barnett and more. Dan Miller will accompany the choir on the piano and organ. We will also be joined by a small group of percussionists. Don't miss this performance!
