‘Tis the Season concerts will feature Taylor Scott Davis’ new setting of the timeless Magnificat text for mixed voices with harp, organ and percussion. Solaris is delighted to offer Vermont’s first performance of this powerful and majestic work recently recorded by the outstanding British vocal ensemble Voces8. We are so very pleased to welcome back harpist Rebecca Kauffman as our Guest Artist for these performances. Beloved carol arrangements will fill the second half with glorious sounds of the season.
