– Winter Concert Theme Geared for a Peaceful Holiday

Queen Anne’s Chorale soloists and chamber orchestra explore the theme of “Peace on Earth” with Vivaldi’s “Gloria”, seasonal selections, and audience participation. While celebrating their 30th year, performing the joyous Gloria for the public is a Holiday treat. The Gloria was originally written for a girl’s orphanage choir in 1715, the manuscripts were lost and therefore not performed until 1939. As a presentation of the traditional Gloria from the Latin mass, the cantata-like sections when accompanied is a pleasure to hear. Robert Huntington, the artistic director stated “We wanted to mark the start of our 30th year with a truly unique and uplifting piece. Our audience will really enjoy the Gloria but will revel in our overall theme of Peace on Earth.”

The performance of Peace on Earth will take place at 7pm on December 1st. It will be held at Chesapeake College’s Todd Performing Arts Center, located in Wye Mills, MD. Tickets can be purchased at the door and are $20 for adults; children through high school attend for free. For more information, visit wwwchorale.org. As part of the Chorale’s 30th Anniversary, there will be special pricing for tickets that include both the Winter and Spring concerts for only $30.

Queen Anne’s Chorale is supported in part through grants from the Maryland State Arts Council, the United Way of Queen Anne’s County, and the Queen Anne’s County Centre for the Arts.
