The Upper Valley Singers, with directors Hal Sheeler and Henry Danaher and guest instrumentalists Margaret Gilmore and Betty Kim, will present a summer concert at Mary Keane Chapel. These singers come together each summer from around the Upper Valley to perform in the Chapel which, with its magnificent pipe organ and its visual and acoustical beauty, is itself an important part of the performance.
The program includes Vierne's Messe Solennelle, choral works by Rheinberger, Brahms and others, and works by Rheinberger for organ, violin and cello.
The Mary Keane Chapel was built by the Missionaries of Our Lady of La Salette between 1930 and 1931, to designs by Donat R. Baribault of Springfield, Massachusetts. The sanctuary features spectacular German stained glass produced by Zettler Studios, as well as a renowned Casavant organ that will be showcased in this performance.
