Making the Old New

Sunday, March 19, 2017 at 4:00 PM
Trinity College Chapel
300 Summit Street, Hartford, CT

CONCORA returns to Trinity College Chapel, where last year a sold-out audience thrilled to the acoustic miracles of Renaissance motets and masses sung by a small choral ensemble beneath the soaring arches of the Chapel’s Gothic cathedral-esque architecture. This year’s program offers more Renaissance motets and madrigals paired with newer music inspired by the originals. The concert will include the second performance of Ellen Gilson Voth's new work Of Distant Skies, recently commissioned by CONCORA and premiered on February 12 at the sold-out Art & Music concert at the Wadsworth Atheneum Museum of Art.

The program repertoire is shown below, and you can get a sneak preview of Chris Shepard's program notes here:

Tickets: $10-$50; most prices increase by $5 after March 12, 2017.
