CONCORA's Summer Festival 2014 Concert
Musical Pairs: Music of Europe and America
CONCORA'S™s 2014 Summer Festival Choir brings guest conductor Dr. Pamela J. Perry to the podium to prepare and present a concert of six musical pairs from Europe and America. The Festival Choir of over 85 voices will be joined by pianists Dan Campolieta and Jake Troy, bassoonist Brian Kershner, and cellist Julie Ribchinksy.
The Saturday concert on July 26th will be the culmination of CONCORA™s 16th annual Summer Festival, which begins on Sunday, July 20 with a full week of rehearsals, interspersed with several social events. We are grateful to our concert sponsor, The Marjorie Moore Charitable Foundation, for their support of our CONCORA Scholars.
The program features J.S. Bach's Komm, Jesu Komm (BWV 229); Verleih uns Frieden by Feliz Mendelssohn and Im Wald by his sister Fanny; a pair of poems by Emily Dickenson, set by Dan Campolieta; and the Sanctus from Leornard Bernstein's Mass.
