CT Master Chorale announces auditions for its 2015-16 season

On Sunday, Nov. 22, the Connecticut Master Chorale will present its annual Holiday Prelude Concert. Glorious sounds of the season triumph in a splendid selection of distinctive choral music accompanied by brass ensemble and steel drums — introducing a new calypso work by Tina Johns Heidrich, “A Big Band Christmas”, music for Hanukkah and Advent, lullabies, multi-cultural numbers, and other festive selections.

“Duke Ellington’s Sacred Concert” is the featured work for the Chorale’s Spring concert on April 3, 2016  From 1966 to 1974, Duke Ellington and his Big Band Orchestra toured the United States and Europe to great acclaim with his remarkable Three Sacred Concerts. This arrangement draws together the best pieces of all three concerts into a single work, recreating what Ellington called “the most important thing I have ever done”.

This concert will be accompanied by the Connecticut Master Chorale Big Band. Both concerts will be held at the First Congregational Church of Danbury.

Rehearsals are held on in Southbury on Tuesday evenings and begin in September.

Founded in 1999, the Connecticut Master Chorale is a premiere ensemble of 55 auditioned vocalists performing in Western Connecticut. In addition to regularly scheduled performances, our other accomplishments include a Christmas Concert at the White House, a U.S. premiere performance at Lincoln Center, three Carnegie Hall concerts, as well as concerts at West Point, Madison Square Garden, and with the Ridgefield Symphony – all by invitation. We won the annual McDonald’s Gospelfest Competition three years in a row and have appeared on ABC TV. Our concert recordings have been featured on WMNR Fine Arts Radio and WJMJ in Hartford.
