“I am delighted to begin rehearsals for 2019-2020 season. The repertoire offers deeply engaging music. The range of emotional quality balances exuberance with serenity and charm with delight. We are thrilled to add new members to the Chorale.”
“Frostiana: Seven Country Songs paints beautiful scenery. Each piece creates nostalgic, peaceful images in music and words. Composer Randall Thompson included The Road Less Traveled and Stopping by the Woods on a Snowy Evening, two of Robert Frost’s most famous poems for this work. Featuring the winds on this program offers a new color palette for the Chorale concert.” -Dr. Steven Hart Chorale Director.
