Continuing a long tradition of inclusion and outreach, CONCORA will join several extraordinarily gifted Connecticut high school choirs to present a program of favorite movements from choral masterworks by Bach (Saint Matthew Passion), Mozart (Requiem), and Brahms (A German Requiem). For many of the young singers, this concert will be their first opportunity to collaborate with professional musicians, and it may be their first experience with this enduring repertoire, and with singing in an acoustically resplendent space like St Thomas the Apostle Church. The concert itself is inspiring and enriching for listeners, too, as a member of the audience said of last year’s Extraordinary Concert: “What a treat to sit and be bathed in glorious sound. The young voices were so fresh and clear and the ensemble sound quite breathtaking. The variety of musical offerings was a delight to the listener and perfectly suited to that grand space.”
Ages: All ages. The concert begins at 7:30 PM, lasts about two hours, and has one intermission.
