Some gems from Swanhurst’s history include, among others,
Puccini’s Messa di Gloria,
J.S. Bach’s Magnificat and Johannespassion,
The Mozart Requiem,
Horatio Parker’s Hora Novissima,
antiphonal works of the Gabrielli’s and Monteverdi, and
Copland’s Canticle of Freedom.
The Swanhurst Chrous Theater has also successfully offered 15 full scale Broadway productions in a Dinner Theater format - - these shows have become a fixture in the March calendar for Newport Country with sell-outs every year.
