This Spring Concert will showcase not only the work of incredible composers, but will offer a virtuoso performance by the 150 voices of NCS singers along with a 17 piece professional orchestra and four soloists, all devoted to contributing to the culture of Greater Newburyport through choral music.
The Newburyport Choral Society Spring Concert, Harmony, will feature powerful masterpieces from the choral canon. The concert will intrigue audiences with a newer presentation of Mozart’s famous Requiem, which Mozart left unfinished when he died. The Concert will feature a version of the Requiem completed by the renowned Mozart scholar and Harvard Professor, Robert D. Levin. In addition, audiences will be amazed by the intriguing music of 18th century composer Jan Dismas Zelenka. This is the first time NCS is performing Zelenka’s music! While Zelenka is not as well known as Mozart, his contemporary Johann Sebastian Bach admired his work and his virtuosic compositions are enjoying renewed attention today. Music lovers will delight in experiencing this exceptional event.
Audiences will have the pleasure of hearing these choral masterworks in the wonderful acoustics of Belleville Congregational Church. Over 140 singers will perform during Harmony along with four professional soloists and a 17-piece orchestra. You will feel emotionally moved by the invigorating music and gorgeous performances of committed and dedicated singers and instrumentalists. This lively Choral Society Spring Concert will be led by the incredibly talented Music Director of the Newburyport Choral Society, Dr. George Case.
