MCGC Sings with the VSO

OCT 29th & OCT 30th!

Members of the Montpelier Community Gospel Choir will sing with the Vermont Symphonic Chorus as they rejoin the Orchestra for the first time since the pandemic returning to the Flynn and performing two fascinating choral works. The concert features the world premiere of Dr. Matthew Evan Taylor‘s piece, from despair … Light!, which forms part of his African American Requiem Series. from despair…Light! explores gospel choral traditions of hymn lining, touching on themes of grief, loss, and shared healing. MCGC will also join in singing Vaughan Williams’ Toward the Unknown Region, set to poetry by Walt Whitman, which celebrates the spirit of youthful adventure. 

The concert on Oct. 29th begins at 7:30 p.m. at the Flynn in Burlington, VT, and on Oct. 30th at 3:00 p.m. at the Paramount in Rutland, VT.
