Weekend Concert Calendar, 7/17/08

Summer is not the boom season for choral music in the city, but I do have a few options for you.

If you want to go up to New Hampshire, you could hear the Great Waters Chorus and Orchestra perform at the Great Waters Music Festival this Saturday at 8 pm. The concert will be at 58 North Main Street, Wolfboro, NH.

The Amherst Early Music Festival is offering a bit of choral music down in New London, CT. On Saturday at 7:30 pm Robert Eisenstein will conduct the All-Workshop Collegium in works by Isaac and Senfl. This will be at the Evans Concert Hall, Cummings Arts Center, Connecticut College, New London CT, and more info is here.

If you want to stay in Boston, check out Gospelfest 2008, Sunday from 5:00 pm to 8:00 pm at City Hall Plaza. This website has information about the headliners. I'm kind of bummed I'm moving that day, because this looks pretty awesome!

And finally, the Boston Opera Collaborative's performance of The Magic Flute opens this weekend! It will be two weekends - this weekend's performances are Friday and Saturday at 7:30 pm and Sunday at 3:00 pm. Performances are at the Boston Latin Auditorium at 78 Avenue Louis Pasteur in Boston.

Summer Sing Schedule:

Monday, July 21 at 8 pm, Diane Cushing will conduct Mozart's "Requiem" at the Old Town Hall in Salem (32 Derby Square.) This is hosted by the Paul Madore Chorale. More details on their summer sings here.

Tuesday, July 22 at 8pm Sean Burton will conduct Orff’s “Carmina Burana” at the National Heritage Museum (corner of Marrett Road and Massachusetts Ave.) in Lexington. This is hosted by the Masterworks Chorale. More details on their summer sings here.
