Middlebury

 
Under the direction of Jeffrey Buettner, the Middlebury College Choir sings music of major styles and time periods of the choral canon, folk music, world music, American music and new compositions. College Choir performs choral-orchestral works with members of the College Orchestra, and student soloists are featured frequently. Recent repertoire includes "Rejoice in the Lamb" by Benjamin Britten, "Triptych" by Tarik O'Regan, "Fest- und Gedenksprüche" by Johannes Brahms, "Winging Wildly" by Kirke Mechem, Requiem by Gabriel Fauré, "The King Shall Rejoice" by G. F. Handel, Missa Brevis in B Flat by Wolfgang Mozart, "Chichester Psalms” by Leonard Bernstein, Iranian folk and classical music, African American spirituals and American folk song. 

The Middlebury College Choir performs concerts each semester, including as the resident ensemble of the Middlebury Bach Festival, and sings for Baccalaureate and other College functions. In recent years the Senior Week Choral Concert has become an annual favorite of the college and community audience.

In addition to the recent performance in Montréal in March, 2013, the Choir has toured to Monterey and San Francisco in 2011 and to Hartford, Boston and New York City in 2009. College Choir will tour to Berlin, Leipzig, Prague and Vienna in May-June of 2014. Click here for more information about the Europe tour.
