A Spectacular 2018-19 Season
The theme for our 35th Anniversary Season is Choral Classics Greatest Hits. We will feature many pieces performed by the West Valley Chorale in previous seasons and highlight recognizable “classical” choral music.
Spring Concerts - April 8th, 9th and 11th
We are working hard on a simply glorious Spring concert. Highlights include some great 20th century classics (Maurice Duruflé’s “Ubi Caritas”, Francis Poulenc’s “Gloria”, “O Fortuna” from Carl Orff’s Carmina Burana and Moren Laurisen’s magical “O Magnum Mysterium). We will also sing several classics from earlier composers including Hayden’s “The Heavens are Telling”, Brahm’s “How Lovely is Thy Dwelling Place”, “Dies Irae” from Verdi’s Requiem, Felix Mendelssohn’s “He Watching Over Israel” and other great works.
At the end of our April 9th and 11th evening performances we will have a reception where our guests can enjoy a refreshment and talk to our singers, director and accompanist. You won’t want to miss this one!
