OPERATORIO!

May 6, 4 PM, Norwalk Concert Hall

Program Notes

“Operatorio” is a completely manufactured word to describe this afternoon’s concert, the combination of opera and oratorio, or sacred works by operatic composers in combination with operatic excerpts which often explore a more secular aspect of spirituality!

 Messa di Gloria...Giacomo Puccini (1858-1924)

 Vecchia zimmara from La Bohème...G. Puccini

 Humming Chorus from Madama Butterfly...G. Puccini

 Un bel di from Madama Butterfly...G. Puccini

COMMUNITY OUTREACH


Free Lecture at the Greenwich Library!

Rehearing for the Library lecture

For the first time, GCS is sponsoring a free lecture/demonstration for the community at the Cole Auditorium at Greenwich Library, on Saturday, March 11 from 6 - 7 PM. It is titled 'Musical Hor's D'oeuvres', A Brief Guide to the Art of Choral Singing and Musical Style, and will be directed by our conductor, Paul Mueller, with a select group of choristers singing selections from a wide variety repertoire from Renaissance to contemporary. Everyone is welcome. Please plan to support GCS by coming and bringing family and friends. It will be over by 7PM, a perfect prelude to your Saturday night dinner!




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

Maestro Paul F. Mueller, accompanied by superb professional musicians, supported by world-renowned soloists. And we are right at your doorstep.

Since 1924, we have been offering audiences excellence in choral music, providing educational and entertaining programs for local schools and community organizations, and awarding music scholarships to nurture future singers.

The Greenwich Choral Society typically presents three or four different choral music programs during its season. An annual highlight is the traditional Christmas Concert, held at Christ Church, Greenwich in December.
