Arthur Honegger’s King David

Friday, June 12th 2015 - 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
at PVCC V. Earl Dickinson Theater
501 College Drive

Bringing together several diverse performing forces from the local community – a 90‐person chorus, professional orchestral musicians, vocal soloists, actors, and Charlottesville Ballet dancers – the Oratorio Society of Virginia, with Music Director Michael Slon conducting, brings Arthur Honegger’s King David to life at the PVCC V. Earl Dickinson Theater stage at 7:30 pm on Friday, June 12, 2015. Tickets are $30 for adults and $20 for students.

For tickets, please visit www.oratoriosociety.org, call 434‐295‐4385, or purchase at the door.

This first‐ever Oratorio Society of Virginia/Charlottesville Ballet collaboration brings to life the biblical narrative of King David in a series of distinct scenes. The dramatic story of David begins with his calling by God, and continues with his triumph over Goliath, his crowning as King of Israel, his affair with Bathsheba, the rebellion of his son Absalom, the crowning of his son Solomon as King, and finally, his death and a prophetic glimpse of the future. In the course of the music, there are several settings of Psalms from the Bible as well as quotes from Bach chorales, a tribute to Honegger’s first and strongest musical influence.
The themes of humble beginnings and a rise to power, triumph of the underdog, misuse of power, and the transition from youth to old age continue to resonate with contemporary audiences.

King David first premiered in 1921 as part of a Rene Morax drama. It was then adapted by Arthur Honegger into a concert work, and has since been highly regarded and performed as part of the standard choral repertoire. “Creating a series of musical scenes with our musicians and professional dancers from the Charlottesville Ballet is inspired by the work’s original form as staged drama,” says Music Director Michael Slon. “Drawing on the wonderful resources of our community, this should become a unique work of art. We hope you can join us to hear and see it!”

About the Oratorio Society of Virginia
After 47 years, the Oratorio Society of Virginia is the longest‐running non‐profit community chorus in Charlottesville and enjoys a reputation for high quality, inspiring performances. Nearly 100 men and women from all walks of life audition to participate in bringing the finest choral masterpieces to Central Virginia audiences. Recent performances have included Beethoven’s Symphony no. 9 with the Charlottesville Symphony and UVa University Singers, Bernstein’s Candide with Ash Lawn Opera, Handel’s Coronation Anthems, and a series of Community Sing‐Ins benefitting local charitable causes.
For more information about King David, the rest of the Oratorio season, auditions, or to purchase tickets, please visit www.oratoriosociety.org or call 434‐295‐4385.
