The Saratoga Choral Festival celebrates the exuberance of dance at the National Museum of Dance at 3:00pm on Sunday, July 30th. This summer's performance will be a collaborative project between the museum and the choir to bring in new audiences for both organizations. It celebrates music written to accompany dance.

 On the program will be excerpts from Brahms Gypsy Songs, a ballet by Monteverdi, the Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy, 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 and more.

 New this season will be a choir of all professional singers in the ensemble. A new professional chamber ensemble under the direction of pianist and conductor Noah Palmer will accompany it. The event is organized by the Festival in cooperation with the National Museum of Dance. The concert will be free of charge and performed in the dance studio of the Museum.

 The Saratoga Choral Festival began in 2001. The chorus has performed with the Philadelphia Orchestra in Mahler’s 3rd Symphony with the Harlem Boys Choir at SPAC, with Charles Dutoit conducting. Previous seasons have featured music ranging from Bach’s Magnificat with members of the Philadelphia Orchestra and Gretchaninov’s Liturgia Domestica to performances of the music of Karl Jenkins, Dave Brubeck, Leonard Bernstein, Aaron Copland and a 2016 special anniversary concert for children in the SPA Little Theater, the summer home of Opera Saratoga and the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center in Saratoga Spa State Park.
