Longmont Chorale 2019-2020 Season, “Destinations”

Celtic and WWII remembrance concerts will be among season’s highlights

The 83rd season of the Longmont Chorale will include a performance of Celtic music with the Denver and District Pipe Band and Highland Dancers, holiday music from around the globe, a concert commemorating the 75th anniversary of the liberation of the concentration camps in WWII, and music which the touring group will take to the Baltics.

*ONLINE TICKET SALES ARE CLOSED*

SEASON TICKETS ARE AVAILABLE AT THE DOOR ON 10/13

In addition, the newly-rebranded Chorale Singers, now known as the Longmont Chorale’s Viva Voce, will perform Handel’s Messiah as guest artists at the LSO’s concert. Viva Voce will also host a fundraiser performance event, “Songs of Stage and Screen”, at the Longmont Museum’s Stewart Auditorium. Viva Voce performances are not included in season tickets.

Artistic Director Scott Hamlin

Titled, “Destinations,” the 2019–20 season is the thirteenth under Artistic Director Scott Hamlin. There will be four concerts in the Longmont Chorale’s usual venue, LifeBridge Christian Church. “Destinations” was chosen as a theme because the Longmont Chorale is sending a touring group to the Baltics in June, 2020. The season reflects travel-oriented themes as the group prepares for their second international tour.

The season opening concert on October 13, 2019, will feature as guest artists the Denver and District Pipe Band and Highland Dancers in a performance of Celtic music titled, “Over the Sea to Skye – a Celtic Adventure”.

December’s traditional holiday concert, “Sing Joy to the World”, showcases music from around the globe. Guest artists are TBA for this performance. The 2019 Youth Vocal Competition Winners are given the opportunity to perform at this annual concert on December 8, 2019.

March 15, 2020 sees the Longmont Chorale commemorating the 75th anniversary of the liberation of the concentration camps and end of WWII via a performance titled, “Liberation and Light”. Guest artists will include soloists (TBA), the local St. Vrain Singers children’s choir, all accompanied by orchestra. The concert will feature Dan Forrest’s “Requiem for the Living”, followed by musical selections made popular in the 1940’s.

“United We Sing – Longmont Chorale to the Baltics” on May 3, 2020 highlights the music which the Longmont Chorale’s touring group will take to eastern Europe on their international tour in June, 2020.
