Bella Voce Women's Chorus of Vermont will present music from a variety of European and Latin countries plus an American folk song or two! Featured in the concerts will be a number of Latin American pieces including an arrangement of Ariel Ramirez classic Alfonsina y el mar and the premier of a newly-commissioned piece written for Bella Voce and their guest artists - two outstanding Brazilian instrumentalists known as the Alturas Duo.
The concert will also include the Mass #6 by Hungarian composer, György Orbán. This beautiful and vibrant work, composed for women's voices and piano, is filled with exciting harmonies and a variety of rhythmic surprises! In preparation for their upcoming tour of Italy and Austria, Bella Voce will also perform pieces sung in Italian and German including Verdi's Laudi Alla Vergine Mariaand Schubert's Psalm 23- two of the most revered songs written for treble voices. They will also perform the rousing Eastern-European folk tune, Niška Banja.
The May 14th concert will also feature the debut of Bella Voce's High School Honors Choir. The new choir was created this spring for the purpose of providing young women from across northern Vermont the opportunity to sing exciting and challenging repertoire with women of all ages.
