The Williamsburg Choral Guild – 41st Season – Celebrating Traditions & New Perspectives
Each concert will feature works that are known as “traditional” as well as works from the 21st century, providing an opportunity for all to experience the creation of new musical traditions.
The works of classical composers (Bach, Haydn, Mozart, Beethoven, Brahms and many others) were not always “traditional.” When they were first introduced, audiences reacted to their experimentations with a mixture of delight and excitement and – sometimes – disdain. However, over time, new traditions were born.
Join us as we forge new pathways and share with our audiences the delights of music’s past and future.
