Description

ATTENTION CHORAL SINGERS!

 

Taconic Opera invites you to collaborate on an upcoming PREMIER PERFORMANCE of an original oratorio composed by our very own director, Dan Montez: Esther. This story of the woman who saved the Jews from their first threat of annihilation will be performed in March 2020 during which Women’s History Month and Purim are celebrated.

 

This is Maestro Montez’s 6th oratorio in a series of biblical themes including Enoch, Jonah, Daniel, Job and David which all premiered to rave reviews.  All performances will be with the Taconic Opera Chorus and Orchestra.  If you’ve performed other oratorio masterpieces before, no one needs to tell you how powerful an experience it is; if you haven’t, you don’t want to miss this opportunity.   Rehearsals will be with Maestro Montez, the actual composer, who will also conduct the performances!

 

No membership fees are required, but singers must purchase their own scores which will be available at the first rehearsal for $20.
