Greater Middletown Chorale

Bernstein and Haydn Concert to be Presented by GMChorale on May 1

GMChorale invites you to join them on Sunday, May 1, 2016, at 5 pm for their performance of two stirring masterpieces, Leonard Bernstein’s "Chichester Psalms" and Joseph Haydn’s "Nelson Mass (Missa in Angustiis)," at The Performing Arts Center, 200 LaRosa Lane, Middletown, CT. Under the baton of Artistic Director Joseph D’Eugenio, the Chorale will be accompanied by the New Haven Symphony Orchestra.

First performed in 1965, the contemporary "Chichester Psalms" features text from selected Psalms that are common to both Christian and Judaic tradition. With echoes of Broadway musicals in the melodies, the composer blended Biblical Hebrew text and Christian choral tradition.

Haydn’s "Nelson Mass," written in 1798, is perhaps his greatest single composition, evoking emotions ranging from solemnity to joy. Although it has been suggested that this work may reflect personal or national political stresses, it was written to celebrate the naming day of Princess Esterhazy, whose family employed the composer.

GMChorale (Greater Middletown Chorale) is an 80-member auditioned symphonic chorus committed to excellence in performing outstanding music for all generations of listeners, with 30 CT towns represented in their membership. The group is supported in part by the DECD/Connecticut Office of the Arts and the Middletown Commission on the Arts. Visit http://gmchorale.org for further information.

Venue: 5 pm, MHS Performing Arts Center, 200 LaRosa Lane, Middletown, CT

Tickets: $35 general, $30 senior, $15 student

The Shoreline Chorale presents ‘Nighttime Odyssey’

Under Music Director Sarah Kaufold and with guest artist Jessie Gutgsell on harp, the Chorale will perform a variety of music on its nocturnal theme.

The Shoreline Chorale’s concert, “Nighttime Odyssey” on May 14, will express experiences, emotions, creatures, and escapes of the night with a full concert program of choral and instrumental music. The concert includes renditions of 'Sure on This Shining Night' by Samuel Barber, the dramatic 'Night, Sleep, Death and the Stars' by Daniel Gawthrop, the comedic 'Animal Crackers' by Eric Whitacre, and spirituals of nighttime escapes to freedom.

Ms. Gutgsell has been a professional harpist for over a decade. She began her harp studies in Cleveland, OH at the age of six.

As yet another crowd-pleasing attraction, the popular group, 'The Shoreliners,' will perform a rollicking version of 'In the Still of the Night and the Day' arranged by chorale member Charles Houlihan.
