The Blacksburg Master Chorale is announcing the opening of its 26th season with a performance on Friday, Oct. 25 at the Blacksburg Presbyterian Church.
The Language of Song concert promises to explore the transcendental element of vocalized music by featuring choral works in Latin, German, and French. The performance will begin at 7:30 p.m. with the traditional masterpiece by Gregorio Allegri, Miserere, and will be drawn to a conclusion with three original compositions by the chorale’s director, Dr. Dwight Bigler, entitled Perspectives. Interwoven with the melodic arrangements of the world renowned Morten Lauridsen, complimented by Brahms’ Op. 31 No. 1 and including a few surprises, the Chorale has prepared a sampler to provide a night of singing for chorale fans of all ages. After the concert, attendees are welcome to meet with the performers and director during a reception in the Fellowship Hall.
Language of Song is the first concert of the Blacksburg Master Chorale’s 26th season of performance. The final concert will be held in May at the new Virginia Tech Center for the Arts building, where they will be performing Mendelsohn’s Elijah.
