Now in its 12th Season, the Georgetown Bach Chorale (GBC), under the direction of Ron Greidanus has become a highly focused organization offering polished performances that are driven with energy and of a quality that rivals that of many international performing ensembles. The GBC takes an historical approach to vocal sound production, interpretive nuance and instrumentation, and holds its concerts in venues that help bring out the drama and sublimity of the music.
Every year, the GBC strives to create a musical menu that will entice audiences to come back to hear more of our music. For the 2010-11 season, we have selected and combined some past favorites, some pieces new to our repertoire, some baroque, some 19th century, even some Jazz to create a series of fresh and exciting concerts.
The Season will start with the return of our “Dinner & Music” event, offering a wonderful gourmet dinner accompanied this year by “jazzy” music.
The Season will conclude with the great Mass in b minor by J.S. Bach. We are very proud to be performing this masterpiece at the new Holy Cross Church.
Also on the Season’s menu will be music by Vivaldi, Charpentier, and Bruckner among others, and, of course, our traditional in-house Christmas concert.
The electrifying violinist Edwin Huizinga will be joining us for our in-house chamber music concert. Last year Edwin gave a thrilling performance of Vivaldi’s “Summer” at our “All Vivaldi” concert, and the February concert promises to be just as memorable.
So please, make plans to come and celebrate a year of music-making at its finest.
