PLEASE PLAN TO JOIN US IN MAY FOR ONE OF OUR CONCERT PERFORMANCES…
Carmen- Love’s Arrow performed with the Arapahoe Philharmonic Orchestra
Performed on Friday, May 9, 2014 at 7:30 p.m. @ Mission Hills Church
The Colorado Chorale will be joining the Arapahoe Philharmonic Orchestra and soloists for a concertized version of Bizet’s Carmen. Bizet’s opera tells a classic story of love, passion and betrayal. Written in the genre of opéra comique, Carmen tells the story of the downfall of Don José, a naive soldier who is seduced by the wiles of the fiery gypsy Carmen. José abandons his childhood sweetheart and deserts from his military duties, yet loses Carmen’s love to the glamorous toreador Escamillo after which José kills her in a jealous rage. The music of Carmen has been widely acclaimed for its brilliance of melody, harmony, atmosphere and orchestration, and for the skill with which Bizet represented musically the emotions and suffering of his characters.
Beethoven’s 9th Symphony and Hallelujah from the Mount of Olives in collaboration with the Littleton Symphony Orchestra
Performed on May 16, 2014 @ Littleton United Methodist Church/7:30 p.m. and May 18, 2014 @ Bethany Lutheran Church/4:00 p.m.
The Colorado Chorale and the Littleton Symphony will collaborate to perform Beethoven’s 9th Symphony. One of the first of its kind, the Choral Symphony became a common practice in the late 19th century, a practice that persists through the present. This groundbreaking work features the choral Ode to Joy in the final movement, one of the most memorable melodies in all of music literature. The Hallelujah from Beethoven’s Mount of Olives is a gem and one of the few pieces the master wrote for choir. The Columbine Chorale will be joining us for this concert.
