ORATORIO SOCIETY OF VIRGINIA 2016-2017 SEASON
This season, the Oratorio Society of Virginia begins a two-year celebration of 50 years of performing choral masterworks for the greater Charlottesville community.
The season will begin with the annual Christmas at the Paramount matinee and evening concerts on December 17 featuring the Christmas portion and the “Hallelujah” chorus from Handel’s Messiah. For the fourth year running, the Oratorio Society will invite youth choruses from local schools to perform with us at the Paramount in these concerts.
On March 18, 2017, the Society invites community singers to join us for Together in Song by participating in a three-hour workshop and then performing American composer Morten Lauridsen’s Lux Aeterna at Charlottesville’s First Presbyterian Church.
The 2016-2017 season will wrap up with A Celebration of Great Choruses on Mother’s Day, May 14, 2017 at UVa’s Old Cabell Hall.
