The Beaver Valley Choral Society is celebrating its 100th Anniversary Year! The volunteer 100-plus chorus was formed a century ago and is celebrating its Diamond Jubilee this year: 2022-2023: Our Second Century of Song. It’s not too late to join the Beaver Valley Choral Society as they rehearse for the 2023 Lenten concert, “God So Loved the World”.
Starting Monday, January 9th, The BVCS Principal Choir and Treble Youth Chorale will meet at 7pm in New Brighton United Methodist Church, 1033 Sixth Avenue, New Brighton PA. They will be joined by the BVCS Orchestra later in the season.
Sharon R. Burchill is BVCS Artistic Director and Principal Conductor. Deborah Silverstein directs the BVCS Treble Youth Chorale.
Miah Siriani, the Society’s first choral conducting scholar, makes her choral conducting debut by directing two a capella selections – “Surely He Hath Bourne Our Grief” (Lyndon Salathiel) and “’Tis Finished” (arranged by Alice Parker and Robert Shaw). Miah is a Duquesne University junior, majoring in music education.
The Lenten concert, “God So Loved the World,” relates the glorious Easter story through music. Among the other works are two movements from John Rutter’s “Requiem;” Pepper Choplin’s “Worthy is the Lamb;” and John Stainer’s title score, “God So Loved the World.”
BVCS is an all-volunteer musical organization whose members range in age from eight through adult — the entire family can join. Auditioning is not a requirement, just a love to make music. Singers should be able to sing tunefully and instrumentalists must be proficient on their instrument and be able to read music.
