Subscription Concert 1

The Chesapeake Chorale


HOLIDAY CONCERT  

Antonio Vivaldi
MAGNIFICAT



Revel in the joy of the holiday season and the glory of Christmas music at this annual Bowie tradition, the Chesapeake Chorale’s Holiday Concert.

Included on the program is a rare Baroque treat - Antonio Vivaldi’s charming Magnificat, RV 610. Although less well-known than its sibling, Vivaldi’s Gloria, the Magnificat is rich in lush harmonies, beautiful melodic lines and stirring drama.

Holiday concerts by the Chorale would not be complete, however, without wonderful arrangements of familiar carols, and a little something new!

Truly a concert of music for the mind, spirit and the heart.

BACHARACH to BROADWAY


 


Join the Chorale as we celebrate the music of the King of Catchy Tunes, Burt Bacharach. This American composer penned those singable songs you remember so well and still love, including:

Do you know the way to San Jose?
The Look of Love
What the World Needs Now is Love
The program continues with medleys from "Little Shop of Horrors" and "Titanic", with a little Bernstein in the mix for good measure.
Bacharach to Broadway!
And at the intermission be sure to enjoy a sweet treat and take a chance on your raffle basket.

Special Concert

The Chesapeake Chorale
Chamber Singers


THE FEMININE
MUSIQUE


Gone are the days when gifted women composers such as Fanny Mendelssohn lived a "sheltered" life and were prevented from having a public career. During the past half century women composers have gained in notoriety and success and enjoy a modern popularity. The Feminine Musique celebrates the contributions of many of today’s most talented choral composers who also happen to be women. Come enjoy an engaging musical experience as the Chamber Singers present an early spring concert of music by American women composers including Libby Larsen, Gwyneth Walker, Alice Parker, Emma Lou Diemer, Elizabeth Daley, Nancy Wertsch, and Abbie Betinis.

VESPER PRAYERS 

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
VESPERAE SOLENNES
DE CONFESSORE


Hailed as a child prodigy, and clearly one of music history’s most gifted geniuses, Mozart wrote music that still appeals and delights modern performers and listeners alike. His Solemn Vespers, (K. 339,) was written for the Salzburg Cathedral where Mozart was employed (unhappily) by the demanding and autocratic Archbishop Colloredo, and is a setting of five psalms and Magnificat.

The concert will also feature music by Gabriel Fauré, Franz Schubert, John Rutter, and a delightful setting of the 23rd Psalm, The Lord is My Shepherd, by Howard Goodall, familiar to many as the theme song of the television show “The Vicar of Dibley.”

Come at 7:30 for
coffee & concert preview with Artistic Director Dr. Jesse Parker.
