“Masters in Springtime” will be conducted by José Daniel Flores- Caraballo, director of the Vermont Symphony Orchestra Chorus, as his inaugural stand-alone concert. Melissa Dickerson will accompany on piano. Newly-appointed chorus director Flores-Caraballo comments, “The legacy of Maestro Robert De Cormier is alive, and it will be witnessed this night.”
The program features a selection of favorite master choruses of all time, including works by Bach, Handel, Brahms and Vaughan Williams. Flores-Caraballo remarks, “The audience will enjoy a feast of the best of the best; favorite movements from all-time favorite masterworks. It is like shopping on iTunes and making your own CD with the music you love!”
The Vermont Symphony Orchestra Chorus is a full chorus representing premier voices from around the state. The Chorus performs a variety of literature both with the orchestra and with smaller instrumental complements. “It has been a great pleasure working with these dedicated singers this season!” notes Flores-Caraballo.
