CONCORA: Connecticut Choral Artists

Concora to Perform J. S. Bach’s Six Motets at Three Concerts in Connecticut

CONCORA will perform Bach's Six Motets in three performances in Connecticut.

Although J.S. Bach wrote nearly 300 cantatas and several important concert-length choral works, he composed only six motets. Considered to be one of the great works in the Western choral repertoire, the motets are highly complex compositions that are demanding for the singer but joyous for the listener. These concerts featuring all six motets will showcase the artistic mastery of CONCORA’s professional singers.

“Sixteen beautiful voices sing some of the most glorious music ever written, the parts weaving in and out of each other, shining separately but also creating the most spectacular tapestry of sound," says Chris Shepard, CONCORA's artistic director, who will conduct these performances.

The Hartford performance is made possible with support from the Maximilian E. and Marion O. Hoffman Foundation, Ensworth Charitable Foundation, and the Friends of Bach, with promotional support from WMNR, Fine Arts Radio.

Founded in 1974, CONCORA -- Connecticut Choral Artists – is the state’s oldest professional choir comprising 45 singers. Acknowledging that music transforms and enriches people’s lives, CONCORA perpetuates and performs with excellent choral music of the highest quality for the broadest possible audience.

Venue: Stonington: Sunday, October 23 at 4pm, St. Mary Church, 95 Main Street

Tickets: For tickets on Oct. 23 in Stonington, call (860) 535-1181.

Contact: For a preview of the music, concert details, and tickets, visit www.concora.org. The web site also features recorded talks from Shepard about each of the motets.
