Solaris Vocal Ensemble
As Solaris begins its fourth year, we have more exciting performances planned for this season! Here We Come A-Wassailing, our holiday concerts with the fabulous Inora Brass Quintet as our guest artists will include a wide variety of festive carols for voices with brass. The quintet consists of Grammy Award-winning musicians who have played with the Vermont Symphony, the Nashville Symphony, Itzhak Perlman, James Taylor, Gustavo Dudamel, on Broadway and at Carnegie Hall.
A special highlight of the concerts will be several joyous carol arrangements by Robert Shaw and Alice Parker as part of Solaris’ 100thbirthday celebration of one of the greatest American choral conductors and arrangers, Robert Shaw (1916 – 1999). The concert will also include works by Ralph Vaughn Williams, Randall Thompson, Mack Wilberg and Vermont’s own Robert De Cormier.
