New Haven Chorale: Heart-y offerings on a Sunday afternoon
It’s not difficult to enjoy a New Haven Chorale concert. There’s earnest vocal work, of course, but there’s also an attention to fun. And in the Sunday, Feb. 24, edition, there’s also a tug at the heart strings.
“Music from the Heart,” led by Music Director Edward Bolkovac, will be a program of stirring and spirited choral pieces, performed at Bethesda Lutheran church, 450 Whitney Ave., New Haven.
This concert will feature the works of contemporary composers such as Rudoi, Lange, Elder, Barnum, Strope and Ticheli, along with spirituals, a choral premiere by composer-in-residence Josh Sparkman, and an audience sing-along. Children are welcome, too.
The New Haven Chorale is an auditioned, 85-voice, professionally conducted, volunteer chorus devoted to serving the Greater New Haven community.
Bethesda Lutheran Church, 450 Whitney Ave., New Haven. Sunday, Feb. 24, 4:30 p.m. $25, $20 for seniors. Students with ID and children free. newhavenchorale.org
