The Keene Chorale presents R. Nathaniel Dett's The Ordering of Moses

Share this event:

On May 1, 2022, The Keene Chorale, under the direction of Cailin Marcel Manson, will present the rarely heard oratorio "The Ordering of Moses" by R. Nathaniel Dett. Mr. Dett (1882-1943), a noted Black Canadian-American composer, used spirituals and gospel songs as his inspiration for this work which tells of the exodus of the Israelites from Egypt.

The Chorale will be joined by the New England Repertory Orchestra, the Clark University Chamber Choir, and nationally recognized African-American soloists Maria Clark, soprano, Crystal Charles, mezzo soprano, Albert Lee, tenor, and Richard Lindsey, baritone.

The Chorale hopes that this project will draw together all the threads that have occupied the public consciousness over the last year: the exodus from the shadow of COVID-19 into the coming "new normal," the increased attention to social and racial justice and equity, and a celebration of the gathering of community around the joy of live music. Per Maestro Manson "Dett's work is an emotional story that the Chorale is excited to bring to the region. The oratorio is scored for a full orchestra that creates a theatrical backdrop for the spiritual songs and melodies used. The audience is going to love this work."

Audience members should come prepared with mask and valid proof of vaccination.
