Sing Vivaldi’s Gloria with Sheepscot Chorus!
Now is the perfect time to join Sheepscot Valley Chorus, as we continue our 35th Season celebration with Vivaldi’s joyful Gloria. A favorite of audiences and performers alike, this time-honored masterpiece will be performed with professional soloists and instrumentalists. Don’t miss this chance to be part of our special celebration! For more information, call Linda Blanchard at (207) 380-2768.
For two centuries after Vivaldi’s death, the Gloria lay undiscovered until the late 1920s, when it was found buried among a pile of forgotten Vivaldi manuscripts. It was not performed until September 1939, and found instant popularity.
Sheepscot Valley Chorus is led by Artistic Director Linda Blanchard and accompanist Sean Fleming, both of Damariscotta. Starting on September 8th, the Chorus rehearses every Tuesday night at 7:00-9:00, the Wiscasset Congregational Church. Recent concerts for the group include last season’s highly acclaimed performance of Mendelssohn’s Elijah, presented in collaboration with St. Cecilia Chamber Choir. For more information about the Choir, please visit our website at sheepscotvalleychorus.org.

Sheepscot Valley Chorus Mission Statement
The mission of the Sheepscot Valley Chorus is to provide opportunities for amateurs who like to sing, and to perform for audiences who share that love of music. There are no auditions. All that is needed to be a member is the enjoyment of singing. We encourage young musicians to participate and offer scholarships once a year to three students, one from each of our local high schools. The Chorus is committed to the classics as well as contemporary, Broadway, Gospel, and premiere performances of new works. We invite you to join the Sheepscot Chorus!
