Concerts & Events
The Harps Eternal
Drawing inspiration from Benjamin Britten’s incomparable A Ceremony of Carols, our winter concert offered a program of elegant, lustrous works written for women’s voices and harp, featuring celebrated harpist Franziska Huhn.
In the spring, we mark our 60th year with a stunning new commission. Sojourner’s Song, composed by Mari Esabel Valverde, sits at the heart of a distinctive program dedicated to works written by European and American women composers. In June we will take the program on tour to France with concerts in Paris, Normandy and the Loire Valley.
Our commission celebrates the 100th anniversary of women’s suffrage in the United States. Interweaving texts by Sojourner Truth, considered the first African-American suffragist, and poet Melissa Apperson, Mari Esabel Valverde gives profound musical expression to the ideals of freedom, feminism and equal rights.
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
