ECHOES: THE CHORAL MUSIC OF RICHARD STOEHR
Sunday, February 18, 2018 | 3:00pm | McCarthy Arts Center, Saint Michael’s College, Colchester, VT
Solaris joins musical forces with Counterpoint and Bella Voce choruses to showcase the rarely heard choral music of Richard Stoehr, a highly respected Viennese composer, author, and teacher. Forced by the Nazis to flee Austria in 1941, Stoehr continued his art at Saint Michael’s College, the repository for his many works. FREE admission.
CARMINA BURANA – In celebration of Solaris’ Fifth Anniversary Season 2017-18
Saturday, April 7, 2018 | 7:30pm | Saint Michael’s College, Colchester, VT
Orff’s exciting and popular work CARMINA BURANA, Cantiones Profanae caps off Solaris’ Fifth Anniversary Season with a bang! A staple of classical repertoire based on irreverent, even risqué medieval German/Latin texts, the opening “O Fortuna” will be immediately familiar to diverse generations of listeners. Celebrate with Solaris!
