Chorale sings spirited “Seasons” 

Saturday’s audience was treated to a spirited performance with many highlights. particularly outstanding was David Gustafson, guest artist from the San Francisco Bay Area, whose beautiful strong tenor voice was a joy to hear. It’s an impressive work, impressively performed.

Review by Cleve Twitchell

The Chorale, 98 voices strong, presented the world premiere of “Visions,” a Christmas cantata, and part one of Handel’s “Messiah,” accompanied by a 25-piece orchestra. The result was a first-class performance of stirring, joyful choral and orchestral music appropriate to the Christmas season. Chances are most audiences have heard this work many times, but there is something extra special about witnessing a performance with some 125 performers on stage… Spectacular.

RV Chorale does it again, and again, and again…
Now we are actually immersed in the rolling emotions that The Passion by J. S. Bach evokes… a profound accomplishment… we will be forever changed.

Fine performance. Bravo! Bravo! Bravo!
I was one of the many people fortunate enough to attend the Rogue Valley Chorale’s splendid performance of Bach’s Mass in B Minor. What an extraordinary evening! From start to finish it was a polished affair of profound artistry, eloquence and exultation.

Letter to the Editor Following the Chorale’s 1999 Italy Tour

While vacationing in Italy we saw notices for a concert by the Rogue Valley Chorale at St. Maria Ricci Church. We made it a point to attend, and, along with many Italians, were very pleased and impressed by the quality and professionalism of the Chorale. We would like to say how proud we were of the Rogue Valley Chorale for being beautifully represented in the arts at the birthplace of the Renaissance.
Bravi tutti!
Richard and Sandra of Gresham

The Chorale combines fun and education. Their program strikes a Western tune – don’t miss it, an enjoyable concert, as well as an education.
