On October 8th, the Dorman chorus and Symphony took the stage together to perform at their yearly fall concert.
The Chamber Singers performed first, singing “Elijah Rock” by Moses Hogan followed by the Symphony playing “October” by Whitacre and “Festliche Musik” by Hermann Schroeder.
The Dorman Chorus sang a piece as a whole and then the Chorus and Symphony joined to perform the concerts main focus, “Gloria” by Antonio Vivaldi.
“Gloria” is a work consisting of 9 movements, taking a total of around 30 minutes to perform in it’s entirety.
Yet despite the length the Chorus and Symphony kept the attention of the audience with the use of varying dynamics and contrasting sounds, which awarded them with a standing ovation at the concert’s conclusion.
