The Hartford Chorale is pleased to announce our 2018-2019 season!
We open the season with “Bernstein, Barber, and Brahms” – Hartford Chorale’s tribute to the 100th anniversary of the birth of Leonard Bernstein, with an excerpt from his Mass: A Theater Piece, an opportunity to be moved by the poignancy of Samuel Barber’s famous “Adagio for Strings,” and to be stirred by what is considered by many to be the quintessential choral-orchestral work, Ein deutsches Requiem by Johannes Brahms, all featuring the Hartford Symphony Orchestra and the Manchester Roundtable Singers and Alumni from Manchester High School.

Vaughan Williams & Mendelssohn
Heavenly voices will fill Belding Theater in April! Vaughan Williams’ blissful Fantasia on “Greensleeves” was originally used in his opera, Sir John with Love, inspired by Shakespeare’s The Merry Wives of Windsor. His haunting Dona Nobis Pacem is a plea for peace in the years leading up to World War II. Mendelssohn’s elegant Symphony No. 2 “Lobgesang” (“Hymn of Praise”) echoes Beethoven’s Ninth, and is a celebration of the German Reformation.
