The return to performing for audiences in person in October was thrilling! Indeed our Dramatic Return program with soprano Teresa Wakim was aptly named. We are so grateful to all who joined us in-person at First Parish in Sudbury as well as fans who watched virtually from around the globe.
Audiences responded enthusiastically to this program curated around the theme of reunification. One attendee wrote, the concert was not just a dramatic return, but “a triumphal return to live performance.” For us, the audience shouts of “bravo” throughout the concert and multiple standing ovations were inspiring accolades that deepened the already powerful experience of performing in a room with audience present for the first time in 18 months.
Feeling joyful and feeling gratitude!
Next up is our festive seasonal offering Sounding Joy. For this program, we’re excited to let you in on some of the Classical period’s well kept musical secrets! In addition to Mozart’s beloved Exsultate Jubilate, we'll bring you charming instrumental pastorellas by the excellent but little-known German composers Bernhard Hupfeld and Gregor Joseph Werner. We're also including a couple of folksy Christmas arias by Haydn, and a new-to-us (and you!) “Musical Sleigh Ride” by Leopold Mozart. Soprano Jessica Petrus joins us for this jubilant concert on Sat., Dec. 18, 7:30pm EDT. Whether you join us in-person at Trinity Lutheran Church in Worcester or online, we’ll be glad to celebrate the holiday season with you!
PS - If you live on the North Shore of Massachusetts, you can catch the concert in-person on the Gloucester Meetinghouse's series on Friday December 17 at 7:30pm
