Social Band, an a cappella choir based in Burlington, Vermont, will premiere a new work by Thomas L. Read this month. Social Band “presents choral music to the public, encourages new compositions especially by local composers, and fosters the joyful and thought-provoking expression of music.” Read’s work, Late And Soon: Six Climate Choruses a cappella, is in six movements: Twilight, Resistance, Bike Politic, Savor, Winter Green, and One Hundred Years to Come.

 

Dates and locations of performances are:

Saturday, November 7, 2015 - 7:30pm at Richmond Free Library

Sunday, November 8, 2015 - 3:00pm at First Unitarian Universalist Society of Burlington

Saturday, November 14, 2015 - 7:30pm at United Church of Hinesburg

Sunday, November 15, 2015 - 3:00pm at Charlotte Congregational Church

 

Read has taken the works of five Vermont poets – David Cavanagh, Verandah Porche, F.D. Reeve, Hiram Ladd Spencer and Sharon Webster to create individual, poetic vignettes that vary in approach but are all mindful of the past and future of our changing environment.

Thoughtful, brooding, giddy, joyful – all of these moods play into Read’s pieces and, indeed, find their place throughout the program that includes a new work by Don Jamison in addition to works by Liz Thompson and Tom Cleary.
