Oratorio Chorale

Community Events

The Oratorio Chorale participates in a variety of community and educational events and welcomes invitations to bring choral music to gatherings in our area.

Each December, we add to the festive atmosphere of the Bath YMCA “Festival of Trees,” an  important fundraising event that supports the YMCA in its mission to serve everyone in the Bath area, including providing memberships to disadvantaged families. The Chorale has participated in this event for the past ten years. Pictured at right are our 2013 carolers.

Our March 2014 program, Shakespeare in Concert,  includes pre-concert remarks by Bowdoin College Professor of Music Mary Hunter, who will discuss music of the theater in Shakespeare’s time and its use in later performances of his work.

The Chorale took our Shakespeare in Concert program on the road for presentations March 3 at Bath Middle School and the Plant Home in Bath. Students at the middle school and seniors at the Plant Home enjoyed a 45-minute presentation by Emily Isaacson, the Naked Shakespeare actors, and members of the Chorale in scenes and songs from the concert.
