Alchemy, the vocal chamber ensemble of the GMChorale, will offer “Soirées Musicales,” a concert that showcases the versatility of this ensemble in performances of accompanied and a capella choral music, and recalls the elegance of musical gatherings in earlier days. The featured work on these programs is the Neue Liebeslieder waltzes by Johannes Brahms, virtuosic settings of love poems for solo voices, chorus, and piano four hands (that is, two pianists playing one piano). The GMChorale’s long-time pianist Allan Conway will be joined at the keyboard by Artistic Director Joseph D’Eugenio, and members of Alchemy will perform the vocal solos. The program also includes choral music by Giacchino Rossini, Randall Thompson, Edward Elgar, and others.
This program is 90 minutes, with no intermission. Tickets are free, but must be registered for at the event website.
