CONCORA: Connecticut Choral Artists
The Dream Concert
CONCORA in concert with Dr. Steven Sametz
The concert features a new composition, “Un Bacio (A Kiss),” the first CONCORA commission supported by the newly-formed Richard M. Coffey Fund for the Advancement of the Choral Arts, in recognition of, and in honor of, Richard Coffey, CONCORA's founder and Artistic Director Emeritus.
Dr. Sametz describes his commission, which is dedicated to Maestro Richard Coffey, as based on a Renaissance text that is a word play on "'bacio," the Italian word for kiss. He offers it as a Valentine's Day present to CONCORA and our audience.
The concert will also feature several other choral works by Dr. Sametz, as well as the world-premiere of his organ solo, "Tenebrae factae sunt (There was darkness)," performed by Dan Campolieta, and choral works by Ysaye Barnwell, Stephen Leek, Steven Stucky and Eric Whitacre.
Dr. Sametz is Director of Choral Studies at Lehigh University and Music Director of the Princeton Singers. He is the recent recipient of the University of Connecticut’s Raymond and Beverly Sackler Music Composition Prize; his new work, A Child’s Requiem, will be premiered in Storrs in March.
