Audience members gladdened our hearts with comments about recent Burlington Choral Society concerts:

Baltic Heartbeat - Music of Latvia - April 28, 2018

This is the most outstanding BCS concert in a long, long time. The second that the alto soloist opened her mouth, I knew it was going to be good. The tenor and baritone soloists were individually wonderful. When they sang together, they reminded me of the duet in "The Pearl Fishers." The organ was great but too loud at times.   Burlington
 I loved the melodic parts of the concert.   Burlington, VT
 A wonderful concert, packed with beautiful music and meaning. We were all friends of Latvia by the end!    [town unknown]
 Very moving and interesting. Kudos. I especially liked the folk songs.     S. Burlington, VT
 Really love that you have done Estonia & Latvia. Is Lithuania next?    Sheldon, VT
 Beautiful performance and insight into the Latvian people and their musical culture.    Monkton, VT
 What beautiful singing; a wonderful choice of music.    N. Ferrisburgh, VT
     Thank you once again for a wonderful concert. The dedication and work of the Burlington Choral Society to prepare and present a program of Latvian music is truly a tribute to our country and its musical history and tradition. To present it so well is the achievement of you and your choristers!  As our group of singers from Montreal and Ottawa stand and sing among the tens of thousands in Rīga this July, we will be conscious of the fact that our music travels  far beyond our boundaries, even to the hearts and minds of our friends in Burlington. Once again, a heartfelt thanks!       Roberts Klaiše, Honorary consul of Latvia (Quebec) and proud amateur chorister.    Montreal, QC

Handel's  Alexander's Feast Nov. 18, 2017

I just closed my eyes and let the glory of it fill my mind.

 It was marvelous.

 How much I enjoyed the concert -- it was totally wonderful. I hated for it to end.!!!

 Everything and everyone was exceptional.

 Thank you for all your dedication and hard work -- always a special treat!

 This is the best BCS concert in years!

 Wonderful -- on all fronts: chorus, orchestra & soloists!

 Great program! Alexander's Feast is one of our favorite pieces of music. Love the tenor. We traveled from Andover (VT) just for this & it is worth it.

 Loved it! Enjoyed being able to follow along with the printed program.

 Glorious sound.

 We came from Montreal after hearing about your concert on VPR.

 

Brahms' A German Requiem April 22 & 23, 2017

You sang heavenly.

 From the first note of beauty to the last -- one treat of Brahms music we had never experienced!! Congratulations to the chorus!

 Excellent performance!! Loved it in English even though I speak German! Transporting!

 Beautiful voices and music.

 We are fortunate to have such a quality choral group in our community.

 It has been wonderful to feel the power and drama of Brahms in an acoustically fine hall with a wonderful chorus & fine soloists!

 Long may they sing!

 I love good live music.
