February 11th, 5 PM: The Art of the Bastarda

In the seventeenth century, the viola bastarda style was the flashiest way for a musician to show off his or her virtuosic, improvisatory chops on the viola da gamba. David Ellis (of les soûls d’amour fame) joins Jake Street for a gamba-harpsichord program, featuring dastardly Bastarda works of Francesco Rognoni, the maze-like machinations of Marin Marais’s Le Labyrinthe, and more.

March 11, 5 PM:  Visions and Remembrances: The Fauré Requiem

This special concert brings together singers from across Connecticut for a joint-Choir spectacular.  The Choirs of St. Paul’s Norwalk and St. John’s West Hartford will unite to sing Gabriel Fauré’s moving, monumental Requiem, featuring organ, harp, and violin.  The Choristers of both choirs will also join in singing John Rutter’s Visions, a mystical work in English and Latin, inspired by texts about Jerusalem.  Tickets will be available online and at the door.

April 22, 2018, 5 PM: Becoming Beloved Community: Exploring Race through Story and Song

April 2018 marks the fiftieth anniversary of Civil Rights leader Martin Luther King, Jr.’s assassination. Where are we as a country now, 50 years later? What have we accomplished and what work is there left to do? Mark Miller, an internationally recognized composer and a strong believer in music’s ability to bring about social change, joins the Choir of St. Paul’s on the Green as they together draw us into an intimate space in which we are invited to tell our stories and sing powerful music across the boundaries that separate us.

June 3, 5 PM: les soûls d’amour: Love, and Other Myths

Courageous, daring heroes; triumph in the face of evil and adversity; true love winning in the end: we all love to hear a good myth once in a while.  For their fourth season, Seabury’s rowdy resident ensemble tells tall tales from across the ages, of lost love, hopeless heroism, and, as ever, a good drink.  Join us for wine, cheese, and another unforgettable concert experience.  Look for tickets online in the spring!
