Oratorio Society Announces 2016-2017 Season

Make your plans now to join the Oratorio Society of Virginia as we celebrate our 50th Anniversary with a trio of exciting concerts under the leadership of Music Director Michael Slon.

Our season will begin on Saturday, December 17, with Christmas at The Paramount, our traditional holiday program and a highpoint of the community’s holiday season. Reflecting our 50th Anniversary theme, this year’s Christmas at The Paramount will feature the Christmas portion of Handel’s Messiah, along with the “Hallelujah” Chorus. Messiah was the first work performed by the Oratorio Society 50 years ago. We will continue our recent tradition of inviting local youth or school choruses to share the Paramount stage. And of course the concert will also feature a selection of holiday favorites. (more)
