Eastern Concert Chorale and Friends

Written by Kate Harner

Willimantic, CT -- The Eastern Concert Chorale and Chamber Singers of Eastern Connecticut State University will present a concert at 2:30 p.m. on Nov. 21 in Shafer Auditorium, located in Shafer Hall at the corner of Windham and Valley Streets in Willimantic. The public is invited. Admission is free; however, a $5 donation is suggested to help support a spring chorale and alumni tour in March 2010.

The chorale is conducted by David Belles, director of vocal studies at Eastern. Special guests will include the Concert Choir of Northeastern Connecticut, conducted by Ted Bradley, and the Woodstock Academy Chamber Singers, conducted by Amy Ranta.

The four choirs will perform a wide variety of music. Major works will include pieces written by Franz Joseph Haydn and Johannes Brahms. Performances will also include shorter Renaissance madrigals and motets by Christopher Tye, Orlando di Lasso and Josquin des Prez, among others. For the grand finale, all the choirs will join to sing "Jubilate Deo" by Benjamin Britten and Mozart's final complete composition, "Ave Verum Corpus."

For more information, contact David Belles at (860) 465-0246 or bellesd@easternct.edu.
