Celebrating its 53rd year making music in the community, Greater New Haven Community Chorus invites the public to its concert, Tapestry of Voices, on Saturday, December 10 at 7:30 p.m. at Battell Chapel in New Haven.
The Tapestry of Voices program weaves a diverse array of selections to spice up the concert season with exciting works like Daniel Pinkham’s Christmas Cantata and favorites like the Hallelujah Chorus from Handel’s Messiah. The chorus will also feature Haydn’s Missa Brevis accompanied by a full brass choir, Philip Kern’s Mary Had a Baby, and Jake Runestad’s Nyon, Nyon – a piece designed to vocally imitate an orchestra – complete with wah wah pedals, synthesizers, drums and bass. Also on the program is one of Morton Lauridsen’s six Italian madrigals, and Sleep by well-known American composer, Eric Whitacre. The concert will be under the direction of Noah Blocker-Glynn with Barbara Robbins as the piano accompanist.
Tickets are available online at www.gnhcc.org or from a GNHCC chorus member in advance for $15. Tickets may also be purchased at the door for $20 immediately prior to the concert.
GNHCC regularly consists of between 85 to 100 voices and draws its membership from throughout the Greater New Haven area. The nonprofit chorus strives to embrace the wide diversity of the community and is committed to making quality music accessible and approachable for audiences and members alike, and has done so since its founding in 1963.
