Leonardo da Vinci asked the question, “Do you know that our soul is composed of harmony?” And when that harmony is realized, our voices blend together and resound!
In a wide-ranging program, the opening performance of GMChorale’s “Resounding Voices” concert season presents evocative choral music that explores our connections to the earth and to each other. Some of the music features composers who are composing at this very moment in time. The fall program, “Where the Earth Meets the Sky,” includes beautiful settings of poetry by Robert Frost, Langston Hughes, and John Rutter, plus Gwyneth Walker’s poignant “White Horses” and rousing “Tell the Earth to Shake,” as well as lyrics from Native American, Shaker, and American folk traditions. Artistic Director Joseph D’Eugenio has selected music of many moods—rousing, poignant, contemplative, subtle, and ecstatic—to showcase the “resounding voices” of the GMChorale. The Middletown High School Advanced Choir will join the GMChorale in several selections.
After producing and performing three choral masterworks last season in celebration of their 40th anniversary—Durufle’s "Requiem," Handel’s "Messiah" with the New Haven Symphony Orchestra, and Meneely-Kyder’s "Letter from Italy, 1944" with the Hartford Chorale and Hartford Symphony Orchestra—the 80-voice GMChorale enters its fifth decade by singing some of the choral repertory’s most strikingly beautiful music specifically selected to heighten our senses and expand our awareness of time, sound, and space.
GMChorale’s choral offerings on Sunday, November 12, at 4:00 p.m., at the Middletown High School’s Performing Arts Center, 200 La Rosa Lane, will span the centuries and will highlight the great vocal diversity and artistry of GMChorale.
Please join GMChorale and experience the beauty, joy, and comfort found in great music. Tickets are available online: single tickets, $15-$35; two-concert (November and April) adult subscription, $60; group rate for 10 or more, $30.
