2019-2020 Orchestral Concert


Dear friends and patrons of the Choral Society,

In response to rapidly increasing efforts to contain the spread of the Coronavirus in our region, we have decided to suspend rehearsals and performances of the Choral Society for the remainder of the current season beginning today, March 13th 2020, until such time as there is a national consensus among public health scientists that it is safe for large groups to begin gathering. We do plan to reschedule the cancelled performances of our Fauré Requiem program and Hammerstein-Sondheim program.

In the meantime, we will be sending out weekly emails and facebook posts with video and audio of past performances to share the music we love and remind us all of what we have to look forward to when this pandemic has passed.

If you haven't already signed up for our emails you can do so by clicking the "Stay in Touch" button at the bottom of this page.

Tickets already purchased will be honored at the rescheduled performance.

You may also donate your ticket back to the Choral Society and we will issue you a donation receipt.

If you wish a refund, please email info@buckschoral.org or call (215) 230-3836

The Choral Society honors Thomas Lloyd on the 20th anniversary of his appointment as only the second Artistic Director in its 47-year history with the premier of a new work by Lloyd composed as a companion piece to follow the much beloved and understated Fauré Requiem. The acclaimed composer of Grammy-nominated Bonhoeffer explores the biblical resurrection appearances of a transformed, risen Christ to Mary Magdalene. Texts for Mary are drawn from the poetically recorded visions of three medieval women mystics: Sts. Julian of Norwich, Teresa of Avila, and Hildegard von Bingen. The choir and soprano soloist engage in three dialogues that probe the boundaries of the eternal.
