Our concerts celebrate the riches of the past while exploring new, contemporary repertoire.
Celebremus: A Season of Song
Our fall concert features works by Poulenc, Charpentier and Rheinberger, three canonic composers known not only for their melodic lines and tight architectural structures but also for their purely beautiful writing for women’s voices. We will include new works by Canadian composer Ramona Luengen and Americans Paul Carey, Brian Banks and Z. Randall Stroope, all of whom lyrically and rapturously offer an historical nod to those who came before.
Amy Beach and Her Contemporaries
In the spring we will celebrate the 150th anniversary of the birth of a local luminary, composer Amy Beach. While Beach was pioneering her way into the hearts of Bostonians, her contemporaries were also busy writing for women’s voices. From France there were Cécile Chaminade, Lili Boulanger and Germaine Tailleferre; from England, Ethel Smyth; and back in Boston, Mabel Daniels. Accompanied by a chamber orchestra, we will present a rich and gorgeous treasure trove of some of the best (but least known) choral works written at the turn of the 20th century.
