The GMChorale sings this weekend!
Sunday afternoon, November 10, at 4:00 pm in Middletown

Scroll down for information about tickets, directions, parking. pre-concert talk, and more.

On Sunday, November 10, 2019, at 4:00pm, the GMChorale will present the Middletown premiere of New Every Morning, a multi-movement newly-commissioned choral work by the highly-regarded, award-winning Connecticut composer Peter Niedmann. 

Artistic Director Joseph D'Eugenio says of this new music: “Peter Niedmann’s setting of joyful texts by two great English churchmen-poets and from several favorite Psalms is a rich musical tapestry that is by turns comforting, celebratory, and uplifting. The music dances with pronounced rhythmic underpinnings and shifting meters, sublime harmonies and a cappella sections, and a virtuosic accompaniment that sparkles and enlivens the choral writing.”

The program also includes evocative choral music written in past fifty years by John Rutter, David Conte, and Dan Forrest, composers whose works are already admired as contemporary classics.

About our Pre-Concert Speaker

Sarah Meneely-Kyder is an elected member of American Composers Alliance, BMI, and New York Women Composers. Her creative endeavors have been rewarded with many commissions, among them the commission from GMChorale in 2011 to write an oratorio, Letter From Italy, 1944, that was premiered at the Middletown Performing Arts Center in 2013 to critical acclaim. In 2016, the documentary, Letter From Italy, 1944: A New American Oratorio, created by Karyl Evans, and narrated by Meryl Streep, was nominated in two categories, and one one of the categories at the Emmy Awards.  In 2017, the combined forces of the GMChorale, the Hartford Chorale, and the Hartford Symphony Orchestra presented the Hartford premiere of Letter From Italy, 1944, at the Bushnell Performing Arts Center.  For 22 years, Meneely-Kyder was a member of the music faculty at Wesleyan University, where she taught composition, piano, chamber music and performed actively.
