Sing With Onion River Chorus

Onion River Chorus Fall Program 2022

Onion River Chorus is looking for singers to join us this fall! We start rehearsing on Monday Sept 12 at Christ Episcopal Church, 64 Sate St. Montpelier 7-9pm. The Onion River Chorus Fall 2022 program is designed to capture both the legacy of founder and long-time director Larry Gordon, and the post-pandemic exaltation of the current chorus. The program includes some of the greatest hits by English baroque composer Henry Purcell (Hail, Bright Cecilia), Italian baroque composer Claudio Monteverdi (Laetatus sum and Beatus vir), and contemporary Estonian composer Arvo Pärt (The Deer’s Cry, Da pacem Domine, and Bogoróditse Djévo). Vocal soloists and a small baroque orchestra will join the chorus for the pieces by Purcell and Monteverdi. The haunting works by Pärt will be unaccompanied. Two concerts are planned for Dec.17 and 18. Richard Riley conducts. Register now to get on the list and for more info contact Cherie Staples: skyearth1@aol.com or call 802-476-2541
