Connecticut Master Chorale

Auditions

Auditions for our 2014-2015 concert season.

Auditions are now being held as we begin our 16th concert season.

Founded in 1999 by Music Director and Conductor Tina Johns Heidrich, the Connecticut Master Chorale is a premier ensemble of 55 professional-caliber vocalists with a precise blend and balance. Critics have described us as "the finest singing and music to be found anywhere", "first-rate singing from a first-rate chorale”, and “simply an outstanding chorus”.

In addition to regularly scheduled performances, our other accomplishments include a Christmas Concert at the White House, a U.S. premiere performance at Lincoln Center, three Carnegie Hall concerts, as well as concerts at West Point, Madison Square Garden, and with the Ridgefield Symphony - all by invitation. We won the annual McDonald’s Gospelfest Competition three years in a row and have appeared on ABC TV. Our recordings are frequently heard on WMNR Fine Arts Radio.

Our 2014-2015 concert season is as follows:

On November 23, we will present our annual Holiday Prelude Concert with an eclectic array of music that will provide jubilant and exalted sounds of the season. Highlights include “A Carol Fantasy” by John Alexander; works by John Rutter, Brad Ellingboe, and Amy Grant; a special segment "Christmas in New Orleans: a tribute to Louis Armstrong" -- songs that were recorded and made famous by the "King of Jazz"; island music, multi-cultural numbers, a rousing gospel finale, plus other festive selections - with brass ensemble and featuring the ever-popular steel drums.

Details - http://www.cmchorale.org/season/15/fall14notes.htm

Our Spring Concert will be held on March 29. It will feature “Requiem for the Living” - a new composition by American composer Dan Forrest. With gorgeous melodies and soaring choral lines, this setting offers an uplifting and inspiring reflection on life, love, loss and renewal. The concert will also include the incomparable John Rutter’s "Feel the Spirit" - a unique collection of spirituals ending with a rousing rendition of "When the Saints Go Marching In"; and joined by Mezzo-Soprano soloist Wendy Gerbier and accompanied by the Connecticut Master Chorale orchestra.

Details - http://www.cmchorale.org/season/15/spr15notes.htm

Rehearsals are held on Tuesday evenings in Southbury and begin September 9.

Fairfield County Chorale

A September Sing - Mozart Requiem

The Fairfield County Chorale will present A SEPTEMBER SING featuring Mozart’s Requiem at the Trinity Episcopal Church in Southport. The audience is the choir at this event.

On Sunday September 7, 2014 at 4PM The Fairfield County Chorale will kick off its 52nd season with A SEPTEMBER SING featuring Mozart’s Requiem at the Trinity Episcopal Church in Southport. In this event Mozart’s Requiem will be rehearsed and then sung under the baton of David Rosenmeyer, Music Director of The Fairfield County Chorale. Maestro Rosenmeyer, in addition to leading the singing, will also offer interesting insights into the history of the composer and the work.
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart's unfinished Requiem has long been shrouded in mystery. Mozart undertook the commission for an Austrian nobleman. The secrecy surrounding the anonymous commission, the circumstances of Mozart's death, the unfinished state of the work, and its completion in 1792, have precipitated two centuries of speculation. Requiem opens with Introitus, which combines Mozart’s hopelessness and passion and concludes with Lacrimosa, a movement characterized by haunting strings and vocal lines that ends in a dazzling crescendo “Amen.” Throughout this distinctive work, containing the last notes Mozart ever wrote, is an unusual mix that is part church style, part Masonic funeral music and part opera. Here we get a glimpse of a great musical genius in his last tortured days, a man convinced he was writing the Requiem for his own death. And so he was.
It is open to accomplished singers, people who enjoy singing and anyone who might like to try. Absolutely no experience is necessary. Anyone wishing to listen is also welcome.
A SEPTEMBER SING offers a preview of our 2014 2015 Season which will include Mozart Requiem on May 9, 2015, as well as Handel Messiah on December 14, 2014 and Beethoven Symphony No. 9 on March 28, 2015.

Venue: The Trinity Episcopal Church in Southport is at 651 Pequot Avenue, Southport, CT 06890. The Church is 2 blocks south of I-95 at Exit 19.

Tickets: Admission is $10 at the door, music rental is included. A reception will follow the event.
