Onion River Chorus 40th Anniversary Gala

In celebration of its fortieth anniversary year, Montpelierís Onion River Chorus invites you to join us for a Gala concert, reception and silent auction on Saturday September 29 at 7:30 pm at the Unitarian Church of Montpelier, 130 Main Street. Admission at the door is $40, and all proceeds will go to supporting the chorusís two ambitious 40th Anniversary programs with full orchestra. Tickets are also available prior to the concert from Onion River Chorus singers or call 802-552-0105.

The Gala concert features vocal soloists and instrumentalists who have joined the Onion River Chorus in many of our concerts. Highlights of the program include solos and duets by Monteverdi, sung by Sophie Michaux and Lindsey Warren, and Monteverdi's dramatic ďAltri Canti di MarteĒ, in which Sophie and Lindsey will be joined by Carolyn Dickinson, Adam Jacob Simon, Wheaton Squire and Larry Gordon and accompanying instruments. There will also be Baroque works by Telemann and Boismortier performed by the Cameo Baroque ensemble, Corsican and South African songs performed by the Northern Harmony nonet, and two Monteverdi madrigals performed by members of the Onion River Chorus led by Sophie.

Founded in 1978, the chorus, which is open to any dedicated singers, has consistently presented high quality performances of rarely performed masterpieces ranging from Renaissance to contemporary. We began our 40th anniversary season in May with our performances of Mozartís Great Mass in C Minor and Haydnís Salve Regina. In further celebration of our fortieth anniversary year, the chorus will present another ambitious and challenging program in December including baroque works by Bohemian composer Jan Dismas Zelenka and French composer Marc Antoine Charpentier, and featuring an orchestra of Baroque period instruments.
