Event Description

ATTENTION CHORAL SINGERS!

 

Taconic Opera invites you to collaborate on an upcoming PREMIER PERFORMANCE of an original oratorio composed by our very own director, Dan Montez: Esther. This story of the woman who saved the Jews from their first threat of annihilation will be performed in March 2020 during which Women’s History Month and Purim are celebrated.

 

This is Maestro Montez’s 6th oratorio in a series of biblical themes including Enoch, Jonah, Daniel, Job and David which all premiered to rave reviews.  All performances will be with the Taconic Opera Chorus and Orchestra.  If you’ve performed other oratorio masterpieces before, no one needs to tell you how powerful an experience it is; if you haven’t, you don’t want to miss this opportunity.   Rehearsals will be with Maestro Montez, the actual composer, who will also conduct the performances!

 

No membership fees are required, but singers must purchase their own scores which will be available at the first rehearsal for $20.

Artistic Impulse

the impulse that drives artistic expression is irrational, unconditioned, and impersonal. it is beyond the grasp of reason and its constructions, which allows it to make the being resonate at frequencies that reason is not able to reach, and thus initiate it into experiences that are beyond his comprehension.See More

NEW YORK OPERA CONSERVATORY - Free virtual opera: Mozart’s Don Giovanni: A Pandemic Nightmare at Youtube

July 20, 2020 to December 31, 2020
As a summer opera program for emerging singers, the  New York Opera Conservatory had to re-think a way to not disappoint its students in light of the covid epidemic. But how do you maintain social distancing in opera rehearsals and performances?  How do you lift moods during such an intense period of uncertainty?  The Conservatory’s answer was to make the pandemic the backdrop of an opera, and some of its consequences a part of the production!  Since Mozart’s Don Giovanni (a dark tragedy) had…See More
