The Hinesburg Artist Series 22nd annual concert will feature the South County Chorus, Hinesburg Artist Series Orchestra and guest soloists under the direction of Rufus C. Patrick. Several selections from Part II and III of Handel’s Messiah will be performed. The concert will also feature a composition by Dan Forrest entitled Requiem for the Living. This stunning five-movement work forms a narrative of light, peace, rest and comfort to the living who have experienced the loss of friends and family.

An ensemble comprised of Jim Duncan, trumpet, Jane Kittredge, violin, Kim Hardy, cello, and Gary Moreau, bass, will perform Jubilate Deo omnis terra by Johann Valentin Meder.

An amazing group of soloists joins the 80-member South County Chorus and HAS Orchestra. Returning guest artists are Grace Cloutier, harp, Amy Frostman, soprano, Gary Moreau, bass, and Jim Duncan, trumpet. We are pleased to welcome, for the first time, tenor soloist Billy Ray Poli.

The concert will be held on Sunday, March 18, at 4:30 p.m. at St Jude’s Church in Hinesburg. Tickets are $20 for adults and $15 for seniors and students. Tickets will be available at the Hinesburg Recreation Office, Blue Cottage Gifts and the Hinesburgh Public House, as well as through Flynntix, (802) 863-5966, and at the door.

We hope you will come support our musicians as they offer this outstanding music for our community.
