In the past two weeks, we’ve taken a look at highlights of the upcoming concert season, devoting columns to some tantalizing orchestral and chamber music performances. This week, we conclude our survey with a look at some of the area’s noteworthy operatic, choral and vocal events.
Gabriel Crouch will present a double bill of Henry Purcell’s “Dido and Aeneas” and Jonathan Dove’s “Tobias and the Angel” with Princeton University Opera Theater on Jan. 10 and 11. More information, as it becomes available, will be posted at www.princeton.edu.music. The Princeton University Glee Club will host two distinguished English choirs, Schola Cantorum of Oxford University, at Princeton’s Trinity Church, on Sept. 18, and Theatre of Voices, at Taplin Auditorium in Fine Hall, on Feb. 20.
The Glee Club will join with Princeton University Concert Jazz Ensemble for Wynton Marsalis’ “Abyssinian 200 – A Celebration,” on Dec. 7. A program of ceremonial music by Purcell, Handel, Walton and others, to coincide with the 300th anniversary of the coronation of George I, will follow on Feb. 27. The choir will perform Verdi’s Requiem, with Princeton University Orchestra, on Apr. 24 & 25. The concerts will be held at Richardson Auditorium.
