A Celebration of Great Choruses

Performed in Old Cabell Hall, on Grounds at U.Va.

The Oratorio Society of Virginia's 2016-2017 season will wrap up with A Celebration of Great Choruses on Mother’s Day, May 14, 2017 at U.Va.’s Old Cabell Hall.

The Oratorio Society of Virginia presents the beauty and inspiration of great music in four to five professional-level, affordable choral and orchestral concerts each year. Under the baton of Music Director Michael Slon, the Oratorio Society has expanded its appreciative audiences and is now widely regarded as one of the preeminent community choruses in this region. Founded in 1966 and giving its first performance, of Handel’s Messiah, in 1968, the Oratorio Society is Charlottesville’s longest-running community chorus and performs in the area's finest venues—such as the historic Paramount Theater on the Downtown Mall, Old Cabell Hall at U.Va., First Presbyterian Church, and the Martin Luther King Jr. Performing Arts Center. Repertoire has included Bach’s Mass in B minor, Mendelssohn’s Elijah, Vaughan Williams’ A Sea Symphony, Handel’s Coronation Anthems, and Bernstein’s Candide.
