Fall 2022 Concert: December 17 at 7:30 in Chapin Hall, Williams College

After over two years off due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the Northern Berkshire Choral proudly presents its return to the concert stage this Saturday, December 17, at 7:30, in Chapin Hall.

Please join us for the brilliant and dramatic Mozart’s Requiem, along with Mendelssohn’s sublime Hear My Prayer for soprano solo and chorus and two glorious motets by Bruckner.

$15 suggested donation, masks recommended for audience members.

IMPORTANT NOTICE – MARCH 14 CONCERT POSTPONED!

The concert scheduled for Saturday March 14th has been postponed in alignment with Williams College’s current policy on events due to concerns regarding the Corona Virus. A new date will be announced in early May. We will share that information as soon as we have it, and hope you will plan to join us for a wonderful program on the new date.  

Please note date change for March concert

Please note that the date of the Northern Berkshire Chorale’s first spring concert has been changed to Saturday March 14, still at 8:00pm, in the Thompson Memorial Chapel on the Williams College campus.

 “I Was Glad” features “Gloria” by John Rutter and other works for Choir, Brass, and Organ, by Parry, Purcell, and Bruckner. 

The program is supported in part by a grant from the Cultural Council of Northern Berkshire, a local agency which is supported by the Mass Cultural Council, a state agency.

The final concert will be Friday May 29, 8:00pm, in Chapin Hall on the Williams College campus and features Mendelssohn’s Elijah, with full orchestra. 
Concerts free with $10 suggested donation. 

Rehearsals begin Monday January 6, 2020!!!

Northern Berkshire Chorale starts its new season this coming Monday, January 6, at 7:15pm in Presser Choral Hall, Bernhard Music Center, Williams College.  Please arrive around 7:00 to allow time to pay the season dues ($45) and pick up additional music–including three Bruckner motets and, for some of you, the Purcell, Parry, or Rutter pieces that were passed out in the fall.       This season’s concerts will be on Friday March 6 and Friday, May 29.  The former will feature Rutter’s Gloria and the latter, Mendelssohn’s Elijah, complete.  We are considering moving the former concert to March 7 in view of the major Sondheim-centered events (and evening concert) at Williams on the 6th.

Our December Concert is just under a month away and we are working hard to prepare a wonderful performance! 

“A Baroque Christmas” will feature two baroque-period masterworks in the Vivaldi Gloria and Bach Cantata 140 Wachet auf, and other baroque favorites for the season, with our newly expanded chorus roster, and chamber orchestra. Please join us on December 13 at 8:00 in Chapin Hall. 
Thanks!
