CONCERTS & EVENTS

Concert I 

Joyeux Noël: From the Eiffel Tower to Notre Dame

Christ Church, Greenwich CT
Saturday, Dec. 1 @ 4 PM
Sunday, Dec. 2 @ 2:30 PM & 5 PM

Francis Poulenc: Gloria, BWV 243

Poulenc’s sense of humor and love of life shine through all his music, and his setting of the Gloria is no exception, with its captivating mixture of solemnity and mischievous enthusiasm. Charpentier, Fauré, Gounod and Saint-Saëns will also be on the menu for the Greenwich Choral Society’s December concerts, featuring choral music by French composers with solos for harp and organ. Our “signature” candle-lit procession will set the mood, as we traverse the many colors of the season with familiar carols and anthems, mixed with a few surprises.

Concert II

A Night at the Opera:

From Italy to Catfish Row

With the Stamford Symphony

With the Stamford Symphony Orchestra, Palace Theatre, Stamford
Saturday, Feb. 9 @ 8 PM
Sunday, Feb. 10 @ 3 PM

George Gershwin: Porgy and Bess - Concert Suite

A selection of choruses and duets from beloved Italian Operas

The Greenwich Choral Society always enjoys collaborating with the Stamford Symphony in the Palace Theatre, and what a thrill to be in the spotlight with a “concert version” of George Gershwin’s Porgy and Bess. In its portrayal of African-American life in the South in the 1920’s, Gershwin’s folk-opera is a work both rooted in its time and timeless in its poignancy and bravura. Soloists, chorus, and orchestra will also showcase wonderful, familiar tunes from great Italian Opera, which will certainly leave you humming with delight.

Tickets available from the Palace Theatre box office at 203-325-4466 or at http://www.stamfordsymphony.org

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.
