CONCORA heads to Broadway!
In a different spin on our Extraordinary Concert, which usually brings together choirs from different Connecticut high schools to perform great classical choral repertoire, this season we turn to one of the most American of all art forms - the Broadway musical. Talented young singers will join CONCORA to present ensemble numbers from a range of great musicals, including West Side Story, Parade, Purlie, Anything Goes, and Titanic.

CONCORA’s 45th Season continues...
Though Dieterich Buxtehude may not be a household name now, his stature was such that the young Johann Sebastian Bach walked 250 miles to hear his Membra Jesu Nostri in the north German city of Lübeck. Nine years later during his time as court composer, Bach wrote the famous Weimar Cantatas, three of which you will hear on our annual Bach concert.
In our 2019 celebration of American choral music, we pair Music & Art: New Britain Museum of American Art, coupling pieces from their collection with choral works from the same artistic school. We will also turn to one of the most American of all art forms, New York, New York: Great Broadway Choruses featuring talented young singers from area high schools.
This is an exciting season of so many different styles of music. Please join us as we explore these works whose origins are such an important part of their identity.
