For safety during the coronavirus threat, we have postponed our April 25 concert. When we know it is safe for singers to gather for rehearsals, and for us to present a concert to the public, we will reschedule.

For its spring concert, the Burlington Choral Society presents There Is a Day, music by Bach and Mozart -- and a world premiere. Artistic director Richard Riley found thematic connections among the works from the 18th and 21st centuries.

Two J.S. Bach cantatas – Komm, du süße Todesstunde, (Come, O Sweet Hour of Death) and Nun komm, der Heiden Heiland (Now Come, Savior of the Heathen) invoke the fragility of life and exult in yearning for heaven. Four movements from Mozart's Solemn Vespers (Vesperae solennes de confessore) include the beloved Laudate Dominum and joyous Magnificat.

Vermont composer Don Jamison calls his new work There Is a Day. Commissioned by the Burlington Choral Society, it sets to music seven of contemporary American writer Wendell Berry’s poems. Jamison arranged them in a poetic and musical sequence that moves from anxious contemplation of a busy road to beginnings of rejuvenation in nature’s peace to bird song vibrant in the air."

There Is a Day premieres in April, National Poetry Month.

Performing with the chorus will be an orchestra and vocal soloists Sudie Marcuse, soprano; Jazimina MacNeil, alto; Martin Schreiner, tenor; and Paul Guttry, bass.
