Connecticut Master Chorale

Jubilate Deo! (O Be Joyful in the Lord!) - by Dan Forrest; Songs of Celebration - by Paul Basler

Tina Johns Heidrich, Conductor

Dan Forrest's "Jubilate Deo" brings to life the global aspect of the traditional Psalm 100 text, "O be joyful in the Lord, all ye lands," by setting verses of it, each in a different language, and drawing from a wide spectrum of musical influences. Each movement combines some characteristics of its language-group's musical culture with the composer's own musical language. The result is a stunning global celebration of joy, as all the earth sings as one, "omnis terra, jubilate!" - "all the earth, rejoice!"

Paul Basler's "Songs of Celebration" is a cycle of six songs celebrating the American spirit. They include Psalm 150, Ubi Caritas, Be Thou My Vision, Sing to the Lord, Psalm 23 and Alleluia.

Accompanied by the Connecticut Master Chorale Orchestra and joined soprano soloist Louise Fauteux.

Venue: 3:00
First Congregational Church
164 Deer Hill Ave.
Danbury, CT 06810

Tickets: $25 ($20 if purchased in advance)

CONCORA: Connecticut Choral Artists

Mozart Requiem

The Mozart Requiem will be performed in memory of CONCORA singer and staff member Christine Laird, who passed away on March 16, 2018.

What is it about Mozart’s Requiem that makes it a perennial favorite? From the time it was completed in 1792 by Mozart’s student Franz Süssmayer, it has never been out of the repertoire. Perhaps the appeal lies in its sheer beauty and the intimacy, not always apparent in large-scale performances, with which Mozart sets this timeless text. With characteristic genius and grace, Mozart connects musical and spiritual realms, and by overlaying the natural restraints of neoclassicism with the passion of Romanticism, he depicts in music the peace of eternal rest alongside the bone-chilling fear of eternal torment.

Composed just as Mozart was reaching the height of his creative powers, the Requiem offers exquisite melodies, rich orchestration, and a dramatic sweep that remain compelling after more than two centuries.

The program also includes Michael Tippett's Five Spirituals from A Child of Our Time, stunning arrangements of African-American spirituals that form the structural pillars of this World War II oratorio, much as Bach used chorales in his Passion settings.

Venue: St James’s Episcopal Church
1018 Farmington Ave
West Hartford CT
4:00 PM

Tickets: $10-$55

Greater Middletown Chorale

GMChorale to Present Carissimi’s Baroque Oratorio, "Jepthe"

On April 29, GMChorale will present Giacomo Carissimi’s oratorio, "Jephte," in a concert program designed to represent the Renaissance and Baroque periods.

On April 29, GMChorale will present Giacomo Carissimi’s oratorio, "Jephte," in a concert program designed to represent the Renaissance and Baroque periods. To complement the oratorio, the ensemble will present other choral gems of the Renaissance and Baroque periods in this final concert of the “Resounding Voices” series.

Carissimi established much of what is now considered traditional to the Baroque oratorio, including the use of a narrator linking vocal soloists and the chorus, with the alternation of recitatives and arias. "Jephte" is an historical exemplar of the mid 17th Century oratorio and is based on the story of Jephthah in the Old Testament Book of Judges. Chapter 11 provides the narrative of Israelite captain Jephthah’s sacrifice of his daughter in exchange for victory over the Ammonites. The libretto for "Jepthe" expands on the Biblical text from Judges: the description of the battle, the song of victory, the revelation scene between Jephthah and his daughter, the daughter’s lament and the choral climax. This work is the beginning of oratorio as a genre, and is important for establishing the form of oratorio unaccompanied by dramatic action.

When GMChorale’s voices resound this season, it undoubtedly will be a feast for the senses! Don’t miss this rare opportunity to hear Giacomo Carissimi’s heartbreakingly beautiful oratorio, "Jephte," a story of loss and reconciliation set to some of the most exquisite music of the early Baroque period.

You are invited to listen to GMChorale and experience the beauty, joy, and comfort found in great music on Sunday, April 29, 2018, at 4:00 p.m. at the MHS Performing Arts Center, 200 La Rosa Lane, Middletown, CT. Please visit www.gmchorale.org for further information and tickets, which range from $15-$35.

GMChorale is funded, in part, through a grant from the Community Foundation of Middlesex County, with support from the Middletown Commission On The Arts and also the Department of Economic and Community Development, Connecticut Office of the Arts, which also receives support from the National Endowment for the Arts, a federal agency.

Venue: MHS Performing Arts Center, 200 La Rosa Lane, Middletown, CT

Tickets: Ticket costs are $15-35
