2020-2021 Season

The orbits and paths of celestial beings are intertwined and intersect, much like the threads of fabric.  We all look up at the same stars and rely on the gift of the same sun. In a time when we are consumed with strife in our lives, sometimes we need only to look up to be reminded of our shared humanity.

Voices of Concinnity planned a program for the 2020-21 season that was meant to be presented in collaboration with a planetarium.  However, due to COVID-19 restrictions, these presentations will not be possible this fall and it is unsure whether an indoor performance is possible after the first of year.

Nevertheless, we will be presenting selections of this program virtually in our "Unconventional Space" series (information above) and exploring the possibilities of an outdoor venue Spring 2021 for performance of the full program in Spring 2020.

Voices of Concinnity will present a reprise of our inclusive, interactive, and innovative program in northeastern Connecticut for the very first time.

Old, New, Borrowed, and... Long Overdue:

More information on the program is listed below on our 2019-2020 Season.

The performance was originally planned for April 2021 in Pomfret.  We are currently exploring options to re-envision this performance according to state gathering guidelines due to COVID-19.

2019-2020 Season

Voices of Concinnity will present an inclusive, interactive, and innovative program three different occasions across the state.

Old, New, Borrowed, and... Long Overdue:

an interactive tour of choral music by exploring the footnotes

This choral concert will explore the "footnotes" by including the interesting tidbits that lend to the intriguing journey some of these songs have taken, such as Allegri's famous "Miserere", as well as the inclusion of composers who may have been relegated to the footnotes historically, such as Rhienberger, a brilliant composer considered of secondary importance by his contemporaries, or Cozzolani, a prominent 17th century composer of which you may not have heard. The inclusion of living composers, featuring Dunphy, Woo, and Quintana, rounds out this captivating program. This performance will be green by having the concert program available digitally and the audience will have the opportunity to engage with an app specifically designed for this program. The result will be an eclectic mix of artfully crafted choral selections, compelling stories of the music and their composers, and conversation starters by inviting the audience to explore inclusion in choral music through a little trivia.

Concinnity has a wonderful opportunity to participate in the Evensong Service presented by the Music at the Red Door at St. John's Episcopal Church in West Hartford, CT on February 23 at 5:00pm
