Join Us For Together in Song Community Sing-In
Once again this year, the Oratorio Society of Virginia invites local choral singers to join us for Together in Song, our annual community sing-in. This year’s event will feature contemporary American composer Morten Lauridsen’s Lux Aeterna, and will be held at First Presbyterian Church, Charlottesville, on Saturday, March 18. The event will begin with a 10:00 am choral master class with Oratorio Society Music Director Michael Slon, for local choral singers who wish to join in the performance. At 4:00 pm, the Oratorio Society chorus and our guest singers will join in presenting Lux Aeterna in concert. In addition, the Oratorio Society will perform choral selections by American composers.
