Music on Norway Pond launches our 7th season, which will feature some of the most exciting musicians in New England as well as singers from our own Monadnock region.
It is time to make your way to the newly renovated Meeting House for our Sunday afternoon Concert Series. These concerts are always at 4 pm, always an hour in length, and always incredibly exciting. Three of the concerts, including the first one on November 16th, will feature some of the most gifted young musicians at New England Conservatory. Our Artistic Director Jody Simpson has been a student, the head of the Choral Department, and a Trustee at NEC, and she has maintained a close connection over the years. We are all reaping the rewards with concerts that are rich with the inspired artistry and incomparable spirit of these dynamic young musicians. The fourth concert in the series is an opera, Segnor Deluso (this one's on a Saturday afternoon, January 10th).
On February 15th, the Norway Pond Festival Singers will offer a performance of the powerful choral work The Armed Man: A Mass for Peace that is sure to rival the impact of last year’s Carmina Burana.
Of special note are two events in January. After Segnor Deluso, there will be a Bistro Dinner next door in the Vestry. Last year, our Bistro Dinner sold out, and for good reason, as it was a magical night for all who attended. And on Saturday, January 24th, in the late afternoon, there will be CD Release Party for Choro Bastardo, last year’s surprise hit ensemble from NEC. They have graduated, but are coming back to Hancock to play at the Simpsons' house and to give you an opportunity to buy their newly released CD. These will be two fabulous parties to brighten up the darkest afternoons of the year.
Please visit our website to see our calendar in detail. You can also buy tickets to the Concert Series, the performance of The Armed Man, and the CD release party. And please watch for future announcements about the upcoming Bistro dinner.
