Burlington’s lively band of singers presents a concert of choral music that speaks of the stars and planets, heaven and earth, with new compositions by Vermont composers and sprinkled with selections from the 16th century by Byrd, Palastrina, and others.
The performances are as follows:
Saturday, Nov. 3, 7:30 pm, Richmond Community Library
Sunday, Nov. 4, 3 pm, Hinesburg United Church
Saturday, Nov. 10, 7:30 pm, Christ Church, Presbyterian, Burlington
Sunday, Nov. 11, 3 pm, Charlotte Congregational Church
Established in 1998 to explore the diverse repertoires of traditional, early, and contemporary music, Social Band, directed by Amity Baker, strikes a balance between raw exuberance and a polished sound that has become known for its signature mix of homegrown and international choral works spanning the ages, with a focus on new works by Vermont composers.
A donation of $15 is suggested. Tickets are available at the door. For more information, please visit www.socialband.org or www.facebook.com/socialband.
