Please stay tuned for our information the 2020-21 Season!
We know there is no replacement for experiencing living music, but here is what we are creating while in isolation:
Voices of Concinnity partnered with composer Cheryl Engelhardt in late March to explore creating a choral composition that expressed the feelings of our singers while in isolation. This composition is intended to be recorded remotely, in a layering fashion to mimic as closely as possible the impression of all of Concinnity singing together. Being recorded currently.
Voices of Concinnity partnered with a local project called Songs of Comfort to fulfill a song request for a friend of ours who lost her father due to complications from COVID-19.
Voices of Concinnity
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.
