The Board of the Mount Desert Summer Chorale has decided to postpone the Mozart Requiem, previously scheduled for this year, until summer 2022. We want to do the Mozart when we know that we can safely bring together a full orchestra and chorus--along with a large audience. And while things are beginning to look more positive for this summer, we believe it is wiser to plan for a smaller-scale production this year.
So, we are preparing a short program of familiar works. This will be a 45-minute concert with a piano or organ. We will sing short pieces that we think our audience will know and will appreciate. We are planning to hold two performances each evening (Aug. 6 & 7) with half-capacity audiences to facilitate social distancing. The short program and the time between performances will allow for airing and cleaning of the hall.
Please plan on joining us for what we believe will be a very enjoyable evening.
