The year 2017 marks the 500th anniversary of Martin Luther's posting his 95 Theses criticizing many of the teachings and practices of the Roman Church at the time, an act that is regarded as the beginning of the Protestant Reformation in Germany. This concert will feature music of the various early reformation movements, not only in Germany, but also France, the Netherlands, and England. It will also feature music of the counter reformation, the Roman church's response to the reformation. A special highlight will be the performance with orchestra of J.S. Bach's Cantata 80 which is based on Luther's famous chorale tune Ein feste Burg ist unser Gott (A Mighty Fortress is our God).

Concert-1980s

Celebrate Singing:
Madrigal Choir favorite songs of
the past 40 years

Sunday, April 29, 2018, 3:00 p.m.
United Presbyterian Church
42 Chenango Street, Binghamton

The choir will look back over 40 years of performances in the Southern Tier and bring to the stage some of the very favorite tunes from its vast repertoire of part songs, madrigals, folk songs, and sacred music. With help from past members as well as the current choir, conductor Bruce Borton plans to put together a delightful bouquet of musical delights from 1978 forward. The current choir will be inviting as many past members as possible to join them in singing a few “old favorites.” It should be a day full of fun, of great memories, and of familiar tunes. Do you have a favorite Madrigal Choir song from the past? If so, let us know. We will try to include it!

The Madrigal Choir of Binghamton!
