The Providence Singers announces its 2008-09 concert season: four
programs reflecting a broad spectrum of choral music, each presented
in collaboration with regionally acclaimed artists and organizations.
The season opens in November with Grammy- and Pulitzer-winning
composer Dominick Argento’s cantata, Jonah and the Whale, presented
with the Boston Modern Orchestra Project at the FirstWorksProv
Festival. December reprises last season’s sold-out Messiah with the
Rhode Island Philharmonic, at Veterans Memorial Auditorium. In March,
the Singers presents an “Anniversaries” program with the Junior
Providence Singers, featuring masterworks by celebrated composers and
poets with anniversaries in 2009. The Singers completes its season in
June with the vibrant music of internationally acclaimed 30-year-old
British composer Tarik O’Regan, presented with the Aurea Ensemble and
featuring a guest appearance by the Rhode Island Children’s Chorus.
