Queen Anne’s Cho­rale de­liv­ers ‘Peace On Earth’

Record Observer - - ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT -

WYE MILLS — Queen Anne’s Cho­rale soloists and cham­ber orches­tra ex­plore the theme of “Peace on Earth” with Vi­valdi’s “Glo­ria,” sea­sonal se­lec­tions and au­di­ence par­tic­i­pa­tion. While cel­e­brat­ing their 30th year, per­form­ing the joy­ous “Glo­ria” for the pub­lic is a hol­i­day treat. The “Glo­ria” was orig­i­nally writ­ten for a girl’s or­phan­age choir in 1715, the manuscripts were lost and there­fore not per­formed un­til 1939. As a pre­sen­ta­tion of the tra­di­tional “Glo­ria” from the Latin mass, the can­tata­like sec­tions when ac­com­pa­nied is a plea­sure to hear.

Robert Hunt­ing­ton, the artis­tic di­rec­tor stated “We wanted to mark the start of our 30th year with a truly unique and uplift­ing piece. Our au­di­ence will re­ally en­joy the ‘Glo­ria’ but will revel in our over­all theme of Peace on Earth.”

The per­for­mance of Peace on Earth will take place at 7 p.m. on Dec. 1. It will be held at Ch­e­sa­peake Col­lege’s Todd Per­form­ing Arts Cen­ter, lo­cated in Wye Mills. Tick­ets can be pur­chased at the door and are $20 for adults; chil­dren through high school at­tend for free. For more in­for­ma­tion, visit www­chorale.org.
