2022- 2023 Season Announcement
Angel Band – A Christmas Cantata
The New England Premiere of Tim Sharp’s new Christmas Cantata, this multi-movement piece has a truly American sound. Songs and carols come primarily from the Appalachian shape-note tradition but also include some Moravian and Celtic songs, all accompanied by bluegrass instrumentation.
Great American Songbook
The Great American Songbook is a collection of significant early-20th-century American jazz standards, popular songs, and show tunes. Join us for our annual silent auction and an afternoon of Great American favorites!
Mozart’s Requiem is a staple in the choral repertoire. The dramatic power of Mozart’s final composition highlights the austere and ultimately redemptive language of the text of the requiem mass.
