Concerts & Events
Our 2017-18 Season
This season we celebrate two anniversaries: the 150th birthday of Boston composer Amy Beach and the 25th anniversary of Artistic Director Jane Ring Frank, whom we’ll honor with a special reception following our December concert.
Amy Beach and Her Contemporaries
Featuring Beach’s The Rose of Avon-Town, accompanied by a 14-piece chamber orchestra, we will present a treasure trove of some of the best (but least known) choral works written at the turn of the 20th century.
The Tree House
Our latest commission, The Tree House, is a three-movement work by Beth Denisch. Arranged for women’s voices, oboe, cello and piano, the text is drawn from three poems by Scottish poet Kathleen Jamie.
Open Rehearsals – Sing with us! – Jan. 16 & 23
Looking to fit more music into your life? We seek and welcome experienced singers to join us. We rehearse on Tuesday mornings from 9:30 am – noon from September through early May at Trinity Episcopal Church, 81 Elm Street in Concord.
Under the direction of Jane Ring Frank, we make wonderful music together. We learn about vocal technique and music theory, we are challenged, and we have fun. Learn more about auditions or contact Chorus Manager Patsy Eickelberg at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
“Choral music holds great intellectual and emotional power and has the means, above all arts, to create community—not only among singers but between singers and their audience.”
—Jane Ring Frank
