Our Adult Chorus 2021-2022 Season

We are pleased to announce the following tentative schedule of adult performances for 2021-2022.

Sunday Afternoon, November 7, 2021 at 3:00 pm

Covenant Presbyterian Church of Scranton

STANFORD AND SONS

Adults $15.00, ages 18 and under free

As a composer, Charles Villiers Stanford (1852-1924) joined with Parry and Elgar to lead a late 19th-century renaissance in English music. Credited with sweeping away “the empty conventions and complacencies which had debased English church music since Purcell,” Stanford also established new standards in his oratorios, cantatas, and part-songs, but it was as a teacher of composition that he exercised his most lasting influence on British music. We showcase Stanford’s music, as well as that of two of his most prominent pupils, Ralph Vaughan Williams and Herbert Howells. Baritone Jordan Markham  joinS us for Vaughan-Williams’s Five Mystical Songs and selections from Stanford’s Songs of the Fleet, and we sing, as well, motets and Anglican service music.

Festive carols and overtures, a parade of wooden soldiers, sleigh-rides, stories, a carol sing-along, and even a visit from old St. Nick himself make this one of the region’s must-see holiday events.
