The Shrewsbury Chorale, one of Monmouth County’s premier choruses, has planned a trio of inspiring choral performances based on a “seasonal” theme for 2018-19. Currently directed by Neil F. Brown and accompanied by John Balme, The Shrewsbury Chorale has delighted audiences throughout Monmouth County since 1957. We sing a wide variety of music ranging from lighter popular fare to choral masterpieces. Our concert season will open on December 9, 2018 with Seasonal Celebration! The highlight of this program will be the Son of God Mass and Requiem Canticorum by contemporary British composer James Whitbourn. These two ethereal works are seamlessly intertwined into a single multi- movement piece featuring choir, organ, and soprano saxophone. For spring 2019, Maestro Brown has planned a not to be missed performance of Haydn’s magnificent oratorio, The Seasons, complete with soloists and orchestra. In June 2019, we will turn to a lighter musical style. The highlight of this concert will be The Seasonings, by Peter Schickele, more popularly known as PDQ Bach. Get ready for some laughs as the composer spoofs the serious and sometimes stuffy oratorio form in a light hearted manner. Mark your calendars and reserve your tickets at www.shrewsburychorale.org for this exciting season! In preparation for our Haydn performance, The Shrewsbury Chorale would like to expand our membership.
