Please join us for a free holiday performance of First Snow: Aoide at Christmas, on Saturday, December 16, at 8 p.m. at the Big Sky Chapel. The free concert is underwritten by the Arts Council’s Schwer-Toepffer Memorial Fund.
With performances described as “the best choral singing we’ve ever heard in Bozeman (or almost anywhere),” the Aoide Chamber Singers have established themselves as one of Montana’s leading vocal ensembles. Founded in the fall of 2012 at Montana State University by then freshman Andrew Major, Aoide humbly began with seven singers. Their high level of artistry and commitment to modern music drew attention from others and membership now exceeds 20. Aoide is a dedicated advocate for contemporary composers, with an overwhelming majority of their repertoire encompassing the last decade of choral writing.

The concert is free and open to the public, and is appropriate for all ages. Seating is on a first come, first serve basis. The chapel is located at 510 Little Coyote Road in Big Sky. For more information please call 995-2742.
