Dan Forrest’s ‘Jubilate Deo’ to be sung in Hinesburg May 22

The Hinesburg Artist Series is bringing back Dan Forrest’s “Jubilate Deo” on Sunday, May 22, at St. Jude Catholic Church in Hinesburg, with performances at 2 and 4:30 p.m. Originally scheduled for March 2020, members of the Hinesburg Artist Series are thrilled to finally perform this marvelous work for the community.

“The ‘Jubilate Deo’ is one of the most exciting pieces we have ever performed,” said Rufus Patrick, HAS Music Director. “Some movements are so joyful we can barely keep from dancing in our seats, and others are sublimely beautiful. This is a concert not to be missed!”

Set in seven different languages and drawing from a wide spectrum of musical influences, the “Jubilate Deo” is very accessible to all listeners. With text in Latin, Hebrew, Arabic, Mandarin Chinese, Zulu, Spanish and English, the piece is a symbolic gesture of unity between cultures and the music has universal appeal.

“It is so satisfying relearning the ‘Jubilate Deo’ after coming within days of performing it in 2020,” said Maris Rose, a soprano who has performed with the Hinesburg Artist Series for many years. “Singing this piece is incredibly emotional, and I feel fortunate to be able to perform it this year.”

The performance will include vocal soloists Amy Frostman and Amy Patrick. There will be a featured violin duet performed by Chris Stork and Kimberley Durflinger. There will also be a trio featuring Chris Stork, violin, Margaret Roddy, clarinet, and Evan Allen, piano, playing selections by Dmitri Shostakovich.

“We are so grateful to the community for the support we’ve seen over the past two years,” Patrick said.

Tickets are $20 for general admission, students 12-18 are $10, and children under 12 are free. Tickets are available at If you need help or more info, call Rufus Patrick at 802-373-0808.
