Join the Grinnell Oratorio Society
First meeting will be Monday, August 28, 2017, 7 p.m., Sebring Lewis Hall at Grinnell College's Bucksbaum Center for the Arts.
The Oratorio Society is open to all – students, faculty, staff, and community members - to get together on Mondays and have a good time singing tuneful, spirited music. Music should not be a spectator sport! Here is a valuable opportunity to get involved.
We had a banner year last year, with performances of Handel’s Messiah and Brahms’s Requiem. This year promises to be equally exciting. In the fall, we will be singing Joseph Haydn’s Mass in a Time of Trouble (Also known as the “Lord Nelson” Mass), and To the Hands, by the young Pulitzer-Prize winning composer, Caroline Shaw. For this November 19, 2:00 pm concert, we’ll be accompanied by a professional orchestra and soprano soloist Michelle Monroe, Alto Soloist Lisa Neher, and Bass Soloist Nicholas Miguel (tenor soloist TBA).
The Grinnell Oratorio Society rehearses Mondays 7-9 p.m. in Sebring Lewis Hall.
