Bella Voce perform this weekend in Stowe, Colchester
Vermont’s premier women’s chorus is headed to Scotland this summer so they have some wonderful music from the British Isles to share with you, including a Gaelic carol and an annual, familiar tune by beloved Scottish poet Robert Burns. Fans of the “Outlander” TV series will recognize the “Skye Boat Song.” You’ll hear a Northumbrian folk song and Cantiamo will perform the playful English Madrigal “Fair Phyllis.”
But not only songs of Scotland and England: you’ll hear music from Italy, Spain, and a robust Hebrew song of praise, “Mi Chamocha.” Closer to home, there will be American folk songs as well as music by Vermont composer Gwyneth Walker and three pieces by Richard Stoehr, an Austrian-born composer who lived and taught here in Vermont at Saint Michael’s College in the last half of the past century. Bella Voce is thrilled to welcome guest artists Laura Markowitz on violin and John Dunlop on cello; those two who will be featured on many of the pieces to be performed at this concert.
The chorus will take the stage on Saturday, May 19, at 7:30 p.m., at the Stowe Community Church, 137 Main St. in Stowe and on Sunday, May 20, at 3 p.m., at the McCarthy Arts Center Recital Hall, 18 Campus Road, Saint Michael’s College, Colchester. Tickets, $18 general admission and $15 for seniors and students, are available at the door or from Flynn Tix at 802-86-FLYNN or Flynntix.org.
