Letter from the Music Director
Dear Friend of Choral Music,
I am pleased to announce to you the Arcadia Chorale’s 2013-2014 concert season! While our name may be new, the quality and variety of the choral music we bring to NEPA certainly is not.
Our concert season begins with Echoes of Arcadia, a program that draws on the characters and natural landscapes that are an essential part of the Arcadian tradition. We’ll also celebrate Benjamin Britten’s 100th birthday with a performance of his Hymn to St. Cecilia. Our Christmas program is entitled NOVA: 21st Century Christmas Music, and will feature the best Christmas choral works written in the new millennium.
We then continue two long-standing traditions, the annual Messiah Sing-Along and the annual NEPA Bach Festival. This year’s Bach Festival includes an exciting lineup of solo and chamber music performances, as well as a choral concert that features Magnificats by J. S. Bach and Arvo Pärt, along with Bach’s Cantata 147. Our Pops Concert concludes the season as we celebrate the music of Arlen, Berlin, Gershwin and Porter in Tin Pan Alley.
Please join us as we continue to bring great choral music to Northeast Pennsylvania!
