Bitterroot Valley Chorus Christmas Concert
2:00 PM
Hamilton Performing Arts Center
Description:
The Bitterroot Valley Chorus, in its 45th season, will be offering its gift of Christmas music to the community in the Hamilton Performing Arts Center at 327 Fairgrounds Road. Dates and times of the performances are Saturday, December 9 at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday, December 10 at 2:00 p.m.
The 2017 Chorus has 84 members from around the Bitterroot Valley. The Chorus is joined by a 50-member Youth Choir featuring 4th-8th grade aged children from public, private and homeschool settings, who come together every year to make music with each other and the adult Chorus.
The Conductor/Artistic Director for the BR Valley Chorus is Peggy Bucheit, who is in her 22nd year at the helm. Mrs. Bucheit has chosen a musical program that includes two dynamic pieces (A FEAST OF CAROLS and SEASONAL SOUNDS) arranged by contemporary composer Randol Alan Bass. Some members of the BR Valley Chorus and the Hamilton High School Concert Choir will be heading to New York City in mid-November, where they will be joining a massed choir in a special performance, THE MUSIC OF RANDOL ALAN BASS, at Carnegie Hall.

Instrumentalists for the 2017 BR Valley Chorus include collaborative pianists Tricie Callaghan-Stover and Dr. Gay Garard-Brewer; Jack Barnings, percussion; and Tasha Fain, violin.

Admission to the concerts is free, but a $5 donation is suggested to help defray the expenses of the Chorus. The Bitterroot Valley Chorus is a 501c3 non-profit organization and is dependent on the generosity of our sponsors and donors to continue providing these high-quality Christmas concerts to our community.

The business of the Chorus is managed by an all-volunteer Board of Directors. If you are interested in becoming a sponsor for the Chorus, please contact Tricie Callaghan-Stover, Secretary, at (406) 360-7362 for more information.
