SIppican Choral Society to perform Mozart

Apr 21, 2022

MARION — The Sippican Choral Society will perform “Mostly Mozart,” at Wickenden Chapel on the Tabor Academy campus in Marion at 7:30 p.m.  Saturday, May 7.

“This is an absolutely beautiful program that the covid-19 lockdown kept us from  performing two whole years ago,” said Mike Chaplin, president of the Sippican Choral Society.  “But we’re back, and we’ve been rehearsing since February.” 

Mozart is a fitting selection for the night before Mothers Day, Chaplin said, “because Mozart wrote some of the most beautiful  music ever,” said Chaplin. “And moms deserve beautiful things on Mothers Day”   

The concert will include solo vocalists and keyboard accompanists, with  Mozart’s rousing Coronation Mass, selections from other major works, and a nocturne that, in its day, served as dinner music for wealthy patrons of the arts.  

 Tickets cost $15 for general admission, $5 for students, and are free for children six years old and younger. All members of the Sippican Choral Society have tickets to sell. Tickets are also available at the Marion General Store, the Symphony Shop in Dartmouth, Isabelle’s gift shop in Mattapoisett, and the Euro store in Fairhaven.

Tickets will also be sold at the door the evening of the concert.
