Choir performs ‘The Heavens Are Telling’ in Vero Sunday

VERO BEACH – Heavenly classical and modern choral compositions will be offered by the Indialantic Chamber Singers when they present The Heavens Are Telling at 3:30 p.m. on Sunday, Oct. 15, at Trinity Episcopal Church, 2365 Pine Avenue in Vero Beach.

The annual fall concert by Brevard’s premier choral ensemble will feature music of reverence, praise and worship, in selections by composers Haydn, Mozart and Beethoven, as well as Randall Thompson, Eric Whitacre and John Rutter.

Interim Artistic Director Beth Green will conduct the Chamber Singers in performance, and Founder and Director Emeritus David Vogeding will accompany the group on the pipe organ during two of the classical selections.

The concert centerpiece is Franz Josef Haydn’s “The Heavens Are Telling,” from his famed oratorio, The Creation. The elegant “Hallelujah” by Beethoven is from Christ on the Mount of Olives, the earliest of his three major choral works. The evocative “Alleluia” by Randall Thompson and ethereal “Lux Aurumque” by Eric Whitacre are juxtaposed with energetic spirituals.

The concert is free of charge, with a $10 suggested donation.

Indialantic Chamber Singers president and bass, Tony Spadafora believes that each audience member will find a musical selection that resonates with them personally.

“This is a collection of extremely expressive music,” said Spadafora. “It is impossible to hear this in performance and not be moved. The pieces are just exquisite.”
