The Belle Ensemble will present a musical exploration of the romance and opulence of high-Victorian and early-20th century England, “Echoes from the Abbey”. This program features works of Sir Arthur Sullivan, Ralph Vaughan Williams, Charles Villiers Stanford, Hubert Parry, and Edward Elgar. The Belle Ensemble was founded by Nick Barootian, General Director and baritone, and Pastor Matt’s roommate in seminary. For this inspiring repertoire, the ensemble enthusiastically welcomes Mr. Gregory Berg to the podium as guest conductor.
The Racine-based Belle Ensemble, beginning its fifth season, is comprised of professional vocalists from Wisconsin and northern Illinois. Mr. Berg is a faculty member at Carthage College, Minister of Music at Holy Communion Lutheran Church, and radio host at WGTD, a WPR affiliate.
