Concert III

In Praise of Music:

Voices of Exuberance

Greenwich HS Performing Arts Center
Saturday, Apr. 6 @ 4 PM

Ralph Vaughan Williams: Toward the Unknown Region

Felix Mendelssohn: Symphony No. 2, Op. 52, “Lobgesang” (Hymn of Praise)

Mendelssohn wrote his Hymn of Praise for the Leipzig festival commemorating the 400th anniversary of Johannes Gutenberg’s invention of printing with movable type. The musical influence on Mendelssohn was clearly Beethoven’s mighty Ninth Symphony, and—as in Beethoven’s great Opus—the Hymn of Praise succeeds in its heartwarming depiction of the journey from worldly darkness to unbridled joy. Toward an Unknown Region is a remarkable marriage of music and text, combining the unmistakable quality of Vaughan Williams’ inspired music while perfectly encapsulating the noble, humanistic aspirations of Walt Whitman’s poetry.

Spring Benefit

GCS Musical Benefit:

In the Mood

Christ Church Parish Hall
Sunday, May 5 @ 4 PM - 7:30 PM

This spring, GCS will hold a musical benefit, “In the Mood,” in the Community Room at Christ Church, Greenwich. Don’t miss this opportunity to hear GCS members sing “fascinating rhythms” in tight harmony arrangements, assisted by the jazz ruminations of pianist Don Militello and trumpeter Peter Holsberg.  You’ll also be “whistling a happy tune” with Soprano Maggie McDowell Stallings as she takes you “all the way” with her entertaining contributions.  You’ll be saying “’s wonderful” as you enjoy the delightful music, festive wines, delicious hors d’oeuvres, and silent and live auctions.

We are the Greenwich Choral Society, 125 auditioned singers led by acclaimed
