Our Season

The Williamsburg Choral Guild’s 42nd Season

 

The 2017-2018 season marks a significant and exciting departure from the Guild’s usual programming.  The highlight of the year is a joint performance in April with the Williamsburg Symphony Orchestra and three outstanding Virginia choral groups in a presentation of Beethoven’s magnificent Symphony No. 9.  In November the Guild celebrates folk song tradition in the Americas, with Music of the People – American Folkways – and in May presents A Potpourri of Choral Classics beloved choruses from compositions old and new.  The Guild’s annual gift of appreciation to the community in December is Christmas with the Williamsburg Choral Guild, a family-friendly holiday song fest and sing-along – no admission cost, but a free will offering of food for FISH is suggested.

 

The Guild also recognizes with profound appreciation Jay BeVille’s 16th year as Artistic Director/Conductor; his leadership has raised the quality and versatility of the group’s musicianship and has garnered critical acclaim and genuine enthusiasm from its audiences.

 

The Guild, the musicians and soloists invite you to enjoy these performances.  For more concert details, click on the links below.
