2016-2017 Season Schedule

Kick-Off Concert to Celebrate our 25th Swason
Saturday, October 29, 7:30 p.m.
Holy Trinity Episcopal Church
1601 Raeford Rd. Fayetteville, NC 28305

In November of 1991, the choral world recognized the bicentennial of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart's death. Alan Porter gathered a number of community singers to join with choirs from around the world to perform Mozart's Requiem. The event was so successful that those singers decided to continue to sing together, and the Cumberland Oratorio Singers was born! Please help us inaugurate our 25th season by welcoming back former members of the COS while ushering in the new with our offering of Mozart's Requiem and other classical favorites!

Messiah Sing!
Performance with the Campbellton Youth Chorus
Saturday, December 17, 7:30 p.m.
St. Ann Catholic Church
357 Cool Spring St., Fayetteville, NC 28301

Have you ever sung The Messiah? Do you own your own score? Plan on singing with COS for this walk-on presentation of Handel's Messiah (Part the First) and the Hallelujah chorus. Admission is FREE!

The Student and the Teacher
Performance with the Campbellton Youth Chorus
Friday, March 24, 7:30 p.m.
Holy Trinity Episcopal Church
1601 Raeford Rd., Fayetteville, NC 28305

Composers have sometimes made an art form of being uncharitable about other composers. In this case, the student was not a fan of the Royal College of Music (where he attended) or Vaughn Williams who taught there. It appears Britten never fully understood the music of Vaughn Williams, and there are several comments in biographies of Britten that speak of an outright dislike for Vaughn Williams' music. Equally, Vaughn Williams did not think much of this young upstart of a student, either. However, we are the recipients of their incredible music as we present two of their great choral works, "Serenade to Music" and "Rejoice in the Lamb."

The Trumpets Shall Sound
Friday, May 19, 7:30 p.m.
Haymount United Methodist Church
1700 Fort Bragg Road, Fayetteville, NC 28303

Bring your earplugs or earmuffs, because this concert is going to get loud! As imperative as it is to sing with an orchestra, it's exciting for choirs to combine with brass, percussion, and organ! A mixture of 20th century composers will be featured, highlighted by John Rutter's Gloria! This is one of the best ways to end our 25th season with a bang!
