Upcoming Performances

Spring, 2023 – “The Emerald Isle: Music of Ireland and Scotland”

To celebrate St. Patrick’s Day weekend, the Opus Chorale of West Virginia will present a concert entitled, “The Emerald Isle: Music of Ireland and Scotland.” The concert will take place on Saturday, March 18 at 7:00pm in the beautiful Centrum of Christ Church United Methodist in downtown, Charleston, WV.

When we were planning for this concert, the decision was made to present a wide variety of music.  Most of the music for the concert consists of wonderful arrangements of traditional Irish and Scottish tunes like”Danny Boy, “Wild Mountain Thyme” and “Courting is a Pleasure.”  We will also be performing works inspired by Irish and Scottish culture, including a gorgeous arrangement of the Gaelic Blessing, “Deep Peace,” composed by Elaine Hagenberg, and a wonderful work by Ola Gjeilo, “The Lake Isle,” whose text was written by the Irish poet, William Butler Yeats.

To add the the Celtic sound of our concert, we are excited to be performing with some of Charleston’s wonderful musicians, including Ryan Kennedy on classical guitar, Ian Jessee on violin, and Leah Trent, a Celtic harpist from Lewisberg, WV.
