Alchemy 2018-2019 Season


Alchemy, the vocal chamber ensemble of the GMChorale, offers a series concerts across the state that often feature collaborations with local ensembles and performers.

Now in its third season, and led by founding director Joseph D’Eugenio, the ensemble, known for its ability to adapt its sound to a broad variety of repertoire, took the name “Alchemy” in recognition of the ancient, mystical art of creating gold through transformation and refinement. Already recognized for its vocal beauty, richness, and subtlety, this 24-voice ensemble brings a touch of gold to interpretations of Romantic and contemporary choral music.

This season’s concerts, called Come to the Music, features a cappella and accompanied choral music by Schumann, Brahms, Bruckner, Duruflé, Fauré, Siegfried, Vaughan Williams, Britten, Thompson, Vierne, and Clausen.

No tickets are required for these concerts; a free will donation will be accepted.
