COPLAND & BERNSTEIN CELEBRATION
Join us this July for the fourteenth annual Saratoga
Choral Festival. Singers will meet for rehearsals over a three-week period in Saratoga Springs beginning Tuesday,
July 8th, and will perform in a concert open to the public at the SARATOGA SPRINGS UNITED METHODIST CHURCH on
Sunday, July 27th, at 3:00 p.m. This summer's concert will feature the choral music of Aaron Copland, including the rarely
heard complete Old American Songs for chorus and full orchestra. Also on the program is the music from Bernstein's
A Wonderful Town and selections from Candide. It's sure to be a great summer!
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)
and Gretchaninov’s Liturgia Domestica, to the 2013 Dave Brubeck tribute concert at the SPA LITTLE THEATER starring the talented protege Eldar
Jangirov. It was our largest audience in the history of the Festival, and a new and wonderful experience for the choir!
The Festival has also had the priviledge of performing with the Philadelphia orchestra in Mahler’s 3rd
Symphony with the Harlem Boys Choir under the direction of Charles Dutoit at SPAC.
