Welcome to the South Burlington Community Chorus!
We are excited to announce our Spring Program of great Love Songs. Our Spring Concert is scheduled for Saturday, May 19th 7 pm at Saint Michael’s College’s McCarthy Arts Center in Colchester, VT.
Here’s a sneak peek at the program:
A Lullaby – The poetry of Eugene Field is captured beautifully in this original work from Ryan Murphy
If Music Be the Food of Love – music from David Dickau and text by Henry Heveningham
River in Judea – This beautiful gospel-styled song is based on a secular text spun from the river-is-life metaphor. By Linda Marcus & Jack Feldman, arranged by John Leavitt
And So It Goes – A very popular Billy Joel contemporary hit ballad performed a cappella
Three Madrigals – Emma Lou Diemer’s musical adaptation from Shakespeare plays
Stars – This stunning a cappella work for divisi chorus and six water-tuned glasses utilizes a poetry by Sara Teasdale set to music from Ēriks Ešenvalds
In addition, we are honored to be invited to sing with the fine group of musicians from the Green Mountain Mahler Festival to perform Mahler’s Symphony No. 2 The Resurrection on April 21st at the Elley-Long Music Center at Fort Ethan Allen in Colchester and again on April 22nd up at Spruce Peak Performing Arts Center up in Stowe. We will be performing with several other choruses and a 125-piece orchestra…. it should be quite the extravaganza!
