Vertical Player Repertory presents The Constitution, A Secular Oratorio by Benjamin Yarmolinsky. Substantial portions of the United States Constitution, including highlights of Articles 1-7, the Bill of Rights, and subsequent amendments, will be performed in the composer’s timely new setting for chorus and soloists, which will receive its first public performances on June 27th and 29th, 2019, staged with a cast of 25 singers.

The U. S. Constitution has been much mentioned in recent news. Perhaps it’s time for us to revisit our democracy’s rule book and reflect on the rights it guarantees. We invite you to come together with us and experience these valuable words, filtered through the prism of Yarmolinsky’s vigorous and engaging music.
