2017 SARATOGA CHORAL FESTIVAL PERFORMS IN THE SARATOGA DANCE MUSEUM!

 

Join us this July for the 17th annual Saratoga Choral Festival. Singers will meet for rehearsals over a two period in Saratoga Springs beginning the last two weeks in July and will perform in a concert open to the public at the National Museum of Dance in SPA State Park on Sunday, July 30st, at 3:00 p.m. The Saratoga Choral Festival will present a concert of music featuring music for chorus and instruments written to accompany dance.

On the program will be music written for the exuberance of dance, from the Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy to Carmen's Habanera, classical and graceful waltzes to Afro-Cuban cadences and jazzy modern standards.  Included will choral arrangements of popular favorites from the movies and theater such as Singing in the Rain, American in Paris. The concert is a collaborative project for the Festival and the museum.

 The Saratoga Choral Festival began in the summer of 2001. Previous seasons have featured music ranging from Bach’s Magnificat (featuring members of the Philadelphia Orchestra), a 2016 Children's concert, Gretchaninov’s Liturgia Domestica, a 2013 tribute to Dave Brubeck with the outstanding jazz pianist Eldar Jangirov, and a 2015 celebration of Yaddo composers for Saratoga Springs centennial celebration. In August of 2004, the chorus performed with the Philadelphia orchestra in Mahler’s 3rd Symphony with the Harlem Boys Choir under the direction of Charles Dutoit at SPAC. Our performances are held at the SPA Little Theater located in the heart of SPA State Park. The Festival joins the list of illustrious performances presented there during the summer such as Opera Saratoga and the Saratoga Chamber Music Festival.
