Key Chorale, the suncoast’s premier symphonic chorus, under the baton of artistic director Joseph Caulkins, has announced the lineup for its 38th season.
It features dynamic collaborations with the Sarasota Ballet, the Venice Symphony, the Circus Arts Conservatory, Artist Series Concerts, and Mote Marine Laboratory and Aquarium. It will also feature masterworks by Vaughan Williams, Verdi, Mozart, Faure, Whitacre and more.
The Chorale will once again present its signature one-of-a-kind programming, including a jiggy Celtic Celebration featuring Foley’s All-Star Irish Band, its annual Ballet collaboration exploring both the mystical and the royal, and a new American Roots show featuring the ear-pleasing harmonies of Crosby, Stills & Nash. There will also be a spectacular season finale entitled Grace the Spirit of Aretha with Westcoast Black Theatre Troupe.
