Art & Music
To celebrate the recent beautiful renovation of the Wadsworth Atheneum, CONCORA will present a program at the museum wih repertoire inspired by the artwork itself. Small ensembles will sing in the various galleries, with music related to the artworks in each room, such as choral music of Claude Debussy alongside Impressionist paintings, colonial songs by William Billings near art by 18th century American artists, and much more. The concert features the premiere of a commissioned choral work by Connecticut composer Ellen Gilson Voth, inspired by paintings of the Hudson River School, including Connecticut-born artist Frederic Church. The event concludes with a concert by the full choir in the stunning Morgan Great Hall.
