Queen Anne’s Chorale delivers ‘Peace On Earth’
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.
As part of the Chorale’s
30th Anniversary, there will be special pricing for Season tickets that include both the Winter and Spring concerts for only $30. The Spring Concert titled 30 Years and Counting will occur April 27,
2019 at the same location and time. This concert will include fan favorites from the previous 30 years.
Queen Anne’s Chorale is supported in part through grants from the United Way of Queen Anne’s Count, the Queen Anne’s County Centre for the Arts, and the Maryland State Arts Council, an agency dedicated to cultivating a vibrant cultural community where the arts thrive.
