CONCORA: Connecticut Choral Artists

Brahms Requiem

CONCORA offers a repeat performance of one of the most enduring works in the choral repertoire, Johannes Brahms’ Ein Deutsches Requiem (A German Requiem).

After its 1868 premiere, conductor Karl Reinthaler predicted that the Requiem “would live as one of the most exalted creations of musical art.” Brahms’ setting, unusual among Requiems for its use of biblical verses instead of the austere Latin liturgy, is beloved for its messages of comfort, hope, blessing, and rest. This performance offers the “London Version” of the Requiem, an arrangement for choir and four-hand piano that Brahms himself prepared for more intimate presentations of the work. The program also includes a lesser-known Brahms choral masterwork, Nänie, a poignant, achingly beautiful, but ultimately consoling elegy.

Venue: St John's Episcopal Church
628 Main Street
Stamford, CT 7:30 PM

Tickets: Free-will offering

CONCORA: Connecticut Choral Artists

CONCORA Sings Extraordinary Masterworks

Continuing a long tradition of inclusion and outreach, CONCORA will be joined by several extraordinarily gifted Connecticut high school choirs to present a program of favorite movements from choral masterworks by Bach (Saint Matthew Passion), Mozart (Requiem), and Brahms (A German Requiem).

For many of the young singers, this concert will be their first opportunity to collaborate with professional musicians, and may be their first experience with this enduring repertoire and with singing in an acoustically resplendent space like St Thomas the Apostle Church.

The concert itself is inspiring and enriching for listeners, too, as a member of the audience said of last year’s Extraordinary Concert: “What a treat to sit and be bathed in glorious sound. The young voices were so fresh and clear and the ensemble sound quite breathtaking. The variety of musical offerings was a delight to the listener and perfectly suited to that grand space.”

Venue: St Thomas the Apostle Church
872 Farmington Avenue
West Hartford, CT
7:30 PM

Tickets: $10-$55
