628 Main Street, Stamford CT
"Beautiful, moving, delicate AND powerful"
"A very powerful performance!"
That's what members of the audience had to say about CONCORA's October 15 performance of one of the most enduring works in the choral repertoire, Brahms’ German Requiem.
Did you miss it? You have another chance to hear it TONIGHT, Saturday, November 4 at 7:30 PM, as Artistic Director Chris Shepard leads a repeat performance at Saint John's Episcopal Church in Stamford, where he is the director of music. The program also includes another Brahms choral masterwork, Nänie, a poignant, achingly beautiful, but ultimately consoling elegy.
The concert, which is presented as part of Saint John’s 275th celebration, also serves as a memorial to parishioners and other loved ones who have passed away. As part of this remembrance, an abundance of red flowers will be available before the concert; members of the audience may take a flower in place it in a special vase as an act of remembrance. All are welcome to participate.
