CONCORA opens the 2016-2017 concert season by joining with five of Connecticut’s finest high school choirs to present a concert of music inspired by William Shakespeare, marking the 400th anniversary of the playwright’s death. Over the past several weeks, these five choirs and their directors have rehearsed with CONCORA's singers and Artistic Director Chris Shepard, a collaboration that has been wonderful for all involved.
When we asked the directors of the high school choirs what this experience means to their students, these are the words they chose:
A gift to be able to participate.
Of course, the culmination of these weeks of preparation is the concert itself, where the audience is an equal partner with the performers in creating a memorable and meaningful event.
Live presentations of choral music are increasingly precious in our ever-more-industrialized and fractious society. These young musicians have made a commitment to being part of the grand choral tradition that we love, and many of them will sustain that commitment as they go on to become the music teachers, arts leaders, and arts patrons of our future.
You are an important part of this tradition, too, and you are also important to its future. Join CONCORA and these five amazing high school choirs on November 12 to say yes to choral music, yes to sustaining beauty in our lives, and yes to a hopeful future. Head right over to the new CONCORA website to reserve your seats – we want you to be part of this “extraordinary” experience. You'll be glad you did.
