NASHUA – Nashua Choral Society announces open rehearsals Jan. 16 and 23. Singers interested in a high quality performing opportunity are invited to participate in these 7 p.m. Monday sessions.
Artistic director Philip Lauriat has brought many years of experience to the organization. He has performed the choral repertoire at the highest level, including a televised Verdi Requiem with the New York Philharmonic. “I'm very excited to work with the Nashua Choral Society,” said Lauriat. “The singers have a passion for what we're doing, and sound better than they have in years.”
“I have a sound I'm after – warm, clear, well blended, responsive, flexible,” he continued. “We are approaching this ideal.”
This season continues with A Pastoral Program on April 1, featuring Randall Thompson's Frostiana, Paul Hindemith's Six Chansons, and other works by Britten, Copland, Bernstein, Stanford, and Vaughan Williams. The May 20 program will be some of the great works of Henry Purcell, including a semi-staged performance of Dido and Aeneas.
Interested singers are invited to the open rehearsals, at Pilgrim Congregational Church, 4 Watson St., on Jan. 16, and at Nashua Community College, 505 Amherst St., on Jan. 23.
