Farmington Valley Chorale is pleased to present a festival program, Masterworks for this Moment, for its concert on Sunday, Nov. 20, at 4 p.m. at St. James’ Episcopal Church, 1018 Farmington Avenue in West Hartford.
Under the leadership of artistic director Dr. Ellen Gilson Voth, excerpts of choral works performed by chorale over its fifty-plus year history include those by Bach, Durufle, Faure, Mendelssohn, Mozart, Rutter, Schubert and Vivaldi.
The following professional soloists and keyboard artists will accompany the chorale:
Sean McCarthy, Director of Music and Organist at First Church of Christ in Wethersfield.
Stephen Scarlato, the piano accompanist for the Farmington Valley Chorale.
Lisa Williamson, soprano, teaches voice at the universities of Connecticut and Eastern Connecticut.
Meredith Ziegler, mezzo soprano, holds a Master of Music in voice from the University of Connecticut.
Travis Benoit, tenor, the Adjunct Voice Faculty at Phillips Academy.
Greg Rizzo-Flower, baritone, a member of the choral music faculty at Southington High School.
These masterworks “are both timeless and enduring, and speak to the current moment we are living in, in powerful ways,” says Dr. Voth.
Ticket prices are $10 for students and $25 for adults. A limited number of tickets will be available at the door at the time of the concert. To reserve tickets or for more information contact firstname.lastname@example.org
