CANCELLED – Beethoven’s Ninth

In response to the escalating threat of COVID-19 in Connecticut, the June 5-7 performances of Beethoven’s Ninth have been cancelled.

Beethoven’s Symphony No. 9 in D minor, Op. 125 “Choral”
Hartford Symphony Orchestra
Carolyn Kuan, Conductor

June 5-7, 2020
Belding Theater at The Bushnell
Hartford, CT

As guest artists of Hartford Symphony Orchestra, we conclude the 2019-2020 season with a true “Ode to Joy” – Beethoven’s towering, magnificent Symphony No. 9. The completion of his final and greatest symphony coincided with his total hearing loss – by the premiere, a concert soloist had to turn him around at the podium so that he could witness the audience’s thunderous applause and ovations.

Christmas in the Americas

Hartford Chorale presents
Christmas in the Americas
Saturday, December 21, 2019, 4 pm
Immanuel Congregational Church, Hartford

The Hartford Chorale’s 2019 Christmas in the Americas concert is a multicultural celebration of a holiday marked by good will, gift-giving, and boundless cheer. Included will be music from North, Central, and South America, including the Caribbean. Joining the 140-voice chorus will be a three-member percussion ensemble, plus harp, piano, and organ, making full use of the historic and thrilling Austin pipe organ at Immanuel Congregational Church.

Celestial plainchant from Toronto will be neatly juxtaposed with West Indian calypso. Boisterous music of the United States’ “first” composer (and hide-tanner) William Billings of Boston will challenge the unearthly sounds of Connecticut’s best-known and highly captivating composer, Charles Ives. Carols and songs from Appalachia, Colombia, San Juan, Mexico, Venezuela, and many other points north and south will dazzle, along with a new work dedicated to the Chorale just for the occasion. A bountiful array of languages, including Latin, Spanish, Catalan, and English, will provide sparkle and spice.

Designed as a musical feast for families and for all ages, Christmas in the Americas promises to set senses ablaze. Its finale, “A Christmas Garland” by Conrad Susa, brings all of the forces together in a medley of carols and folk songs, with instruments, chorus, and audience joining in sing-along fashion, everyone rollicking through well-known favorites and joyfully raising the roof.

Tickets: hartfordchorale.org or 860-547-1982.
$25 Adults, $10 Students, Children under 13 free
