Vox Nova Choral Consort is proud to present an expanded concert season to include twelve performances and themed, A SEASON OF SONG. The 2017-2018 season features three concert series with twelve performances by four chamber choirs and accompanied by members of the instrumental consort.
This season was inspired by the artistry of Ed Buonvecchio, Maine landscape painter. His paintings are featured in our media and are on display in a traveling gallery at each of our Four Seasons concerts. Buonvecchio’s full online gallery may be viewed at www.edbuonvecchio.com.
The musical repertory for this season is inspired by nature’s musical beauty as expressed through seasonal transformation and change. Concert performances are designed to illuminate and celebrate the beauty and uniqueness of each of the four seasons: Autumn, Winter, Spring and Summer.
The Four Seasons: Equinox and Solstice performed by Vox Nova Chamber Choir and INTIMA with concerts in November, January, April and June.
Members of the new Instrumental Consort will feature harp, classical guitar, flute, wind ensemble, oboe, string quartet and much more!
Among the specialty elements to enhance the concert experience are theatrical narration and a traveling art gallery of New England landscape paintings by artist Ed Buonvecchio.
Vox Nova Chamber Choir presents its third installment of a The Four Seasons concert series entitled, Spring Equinox with a performance Sunday, April 15, 2018 at 3:00 PM at The Orion Performing Arts Center, Mt. Ararat Middle School, 66 Republic Ave., Topsham.
The music for Spring Equinox celebrates nature’s awakening from winter. Hyems’ “Be Gone, Winter!” heralds the departure of the frozen season. Stephen Paulus’ “Spring” and “Afternoon on a Hill” herald the earth’s rebirth through her flora and fauna. White’s “Blue Estuaries,” “Nightingales” by Finzi, Tippet’s “Dance: Clarion Air,” provide traditional fader while the whimsical “Language of the Birds” accompanied by string quartet and composed by Australian composer Veronika Krausas pokes fun. Ole Gjeilo’s “Across the Vast Eternal Sky” highlights rebirth with imagery of a fiery sunset representative of the phoenix.
Vox Nova Chamber Choir (Est. 2009) under the direction of Dr. Shannon Chase, champions the expansive body of modern and contemporary choral repertory.
