Burnt Hills Oratorio Society offers three dramatic musical presentations that explore “The Gift of Life.”
John Rutter’s The Gift of Life is a six-movement choral celebration of the living earth, of creation, and of life itself, offering a kaleidoscope of moods from contemplative and prayerful to majestic and inspirational.
Savitri is a one act chamber opera by Gustav Holst featuring soloists from Auriel Camerata. Death visits the woodland home of Savitri to take her husband. Savitri tricks Death into retreating, saving the life of her husband.
The Ballad of Little Musgrave and Lady Barnard, by Benjamin Britten, tells the story of an unfaithful wife and her lover whom are discovered and murdered by the cheated husband.

The Gift of Life
BHOS has started rehearsing for its next concert, The Gift of Life, and always welcomes singers. Maybe you have sung with us before, or maybe you have always wanted to lift your voice with others. BHOS is a friendly non-auditioned chorus that continually produces highly artistic choral performances. Pop into one of our rehearsals to experience the thrill of singing under the inspiring direction of William Jon Gray. Just ask any of our singers, and they will tell you how much they learn about singing, and how much fun it is.
