"...one of the most finely polished choirs in Portland, and the competition is hefty." Allan Kozinn, Press Herald.
We present a festive 10th Anniversary Celebration Gala, to celebrate the ten years of offering quality early music to Maine audiences by Maine singers and instrumentalists, with a concert and wine tasting featuring Erica Archer, Sommelier.
Non-alcoholic beverages donated by Maine Root Beverages.
The concert will feature some of the favorite pieces the ensemble has enjoyed over the years, including offerings for spring by Claude le Jeune, an air de cour with lute, and humorous scenes from Purcell's King Arthur, complete with period instruments. Some of Monteverdi's most loved madrigals will lift your spirits, as well as enchanting music by Tallis', excerpts from Charpentier's Messe de Minuit, two astonishing movements from Handel's Dixit Dominus, and an ending chorus from Handel's celebratory Ode to Music.
Tickets are $50 in advance. We strongly encourage advance ticket sales, at door ticket sales will not be available. If unable to purchase online, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org for other purchasing options.
This event is a fundraiser to help Schola produce our very first CD that will be given to all concert attendees who purchase in advance, when available.
