“That was the most beautiful choral singing I’ve ever heard, and I’ve heard so many groups!
I’ve seen Robert Shaw’s group several times! I’ve been around a lot of music and that was just glorious.”
Alchemy, the vocal chamber ensemble of the GMChorale, was established in 2016 as a company of musicians comprised of music educators, professional soloists and performers, and skilled ensemble singers and instrumentalists. Alchemy’s mission is to advance and support the GMChorale’s vision of “Singing for a Lifetime” through concert tours, collaborations, musical leadership, education, and community engagement.
Led by founding Artistic 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 a process of transformation and refinement. Established in 2016 and already recognized for its vocal beauty, richness, and subtlety, this ensemble brings a touch of gold to concerts and collaborations of the highest musical quality. The musicians of Alchemy are also members of the 80-voice Chorale, which performs a wide range of choral music from several centuries, from beloved masterworks to newly commissioned pieces.
In the 2018-2019 season, Alchemy will offer a series of concerts in communities across Connecticut. Join the GMChorale’s email newsletter for updates on concerts by Alchemy and the GMChorale. Sign up here.
