The GMChorale’s Artistic Director, Joseph D’Eugenio, describes the music he has selected for you to enjoy:
When we gathered in May for an all-Bruckner concert, the unusual pairing of chorus and wind symphony made Bruckner’s music seem fresh, though most of it had been composed 150 years ago. Older music, yes, but newly-heard that day. As the GMChorale’s 2019-2020 season took shape, “newness” emerged as a theme, not only in newly-composed music, but in newly-considered approaches to established classics, and in lesser-known though beautiful music that deserves to be newly-heard.
In November, the GMChorale will give the first Middletown performance of New Every Morning by Connecticut composer Peter Niedmann, commissioned in 2019 by the First Congregational Church in Cheshire. A joyful setting of hopeful, evocative texts, this music weaves a rich tapestry that is comforting, celebratory, and uplifting. To frame this brand-new music, the Chorale will sing a selection of choral settings that evoke ancient traditions from Renaissance Italy to Appalachia and beyond.
When we think of Bach, Handel, Mozart, and Schubert, our minds turn to the past. Newness in centuries-old music? Impossible! Yet in these timeless works we can find new inspiration. In our April concert With Joy of Heart and Gladness, the GMChorale will offer fresh interpretations of well-known masterworks for chorus and strings. We will welcome the young voices of the Elm City Girls’ Choir and the Saecula Singers, along with some of the finest string players in the region, to join the Chorale as they bring new life to these beloved classics.
