Spring Concerts Will Be Here Soon
“Homeward Bound” is the theme for the Hartford Community Chorus Spring Concert this May 3rd and 4th. Under the artistic direction of founding director Ruth A. Knoll, the Hartford Community Chorus will perform music of our heavenly home as well as our earthly home, bringing an emotional response of vitality, hope, and peace. Ken French returns as accompanist.
Our Christian heritage renews itself with those old early American church favorites such as Amazing Grace sung in true gospel spirit. Also performed is a wonderful arrangement of Sine Nomine with rich harmonies, often known as, For All the Saints. Both hymns are shared by many denominations.
The Road Not Taken and The Road Home are sensitive and touching pieces of music. With a rich text and fine music arrangements both songs can bring tears as the song conveys its message.
The musicality of the chorus is demonstrated through the engaging performance of How Lovely Is Thy Dwelling Place from the German Requiem by Brahms. This is truly a beautiful piece of music that can leave one breathless.
Of course the Hartford Community Chorus always adds familiar music to their repertoire. This season Shenandoah, Deep River, and Take Me Home Country Roads are just a few of those popular requests, making for a well rounded performance.
The final number, An American Trilogy, featuring a patriotic medley of songs, is presented with a strong gospel feeling, giving both heart and soul to the performance.
The music from this concert will keep you singing throughout the evening and days to come. The message from the music will remain imprinted in hearts forever.
