One City Choir
The One City Choir, launched in the summer of 2012, is a large symphonic choir comprising committed and passionate singers from all of Boston’s 20 neighborhoods and many surrounding communities. The choir takes its name from the words of Boston civic leader Hubie Jones, who has advocated that “Boston can be one city through arts and culture.”
The choir, sponsired by the Boston Landmarks Orchestra, will be featured on the Verdi and Valkyries program, Wednesday, July 27 at 7:00 PM (rain date, Thursday, July 28). One of the greatest dramatic singers of her generation, Jane Eaglen, soprano, headlines a powerhouse program. Choral selections include the opening of Puccini’s Manon Lescaut, the Anvil Chorus from Il Trovatore, and the New England premiere of the original 1869 version of Verdi’s Libera me, which five years later he transformed into the dramatic conclusion of the Requiem.
Rehearsal dates are as follows: Monday, July 18, 7-10 pm; Tuesday, July 19, 7-10 pm; Thursday, July 21, 7-10 pm; Sunday, July 24, 2-5 pm; Sunday, July 25, 5-7 pm; Tuesday, July 26, 7-10 pm; Wednesday, July 27, 5:30 pm (sound check).
