Concerts & Events
Our 2018-19 Season
Laced with carols, choruses and songs, with works by Ola Gjeilo, Ramona Luengen, Kim André Arnesen, Edward Henderson, Paul Carey, Andrew Carter and Ralph Vaughan Williams, our season traced the wondrous, perennial path from winter to spring.
In May, we celebrated a world in musical bloom. From Ralph Vaughan Williams to the Wailin’ Jennys, the program featured beloved music from the classical, contemporary and folk traditions. We were joined for this concert by the Advanced Choir of the Carlisle Middle School Chorus, directed by Valerie Thomforde.
The Tree House
Our latest commission, The Tree House, is a three-movement work by Beth Denisch. Arranged for women’s voices, oboe, cello and piano, the text is drawn from three poems by Scottish poet Kathleen Jamie.
Sing With Us!
Looking to fit more music into your life? We seek and welcome experienced singers to join us. We rehearse on Tuesday mornings from 9:30 am – noon from September through early May at Trinity Episcopal Church, 81 Elm Street in Concord.
Under the direction of Jane Ring Frank, we make wonderful music together. We learn about vocal technique and music theory, we are challenged, and we have fun. Learn more about auditions or contact Chorus Manager Patsy Eickelberg at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
“Choral music holds great intellectual and emotional power and has the means, above all arts, to create community—not only among singers but between singers and their audience.”
—Jane Ring Frank
