Alchemy, the region’s newest vocal chamber ensemble, celebrates its first full season with a series of concerts across Connecticut.
Led by founding director Joseph D’Eugenio, the ensemble, known for its ability to adapt its sound to a broad variety of repertoire, took the name “Alchemy” in recognition of the ancient, mystical art of creating gold through transformation and refinement. Already recognized for its vocal beauty, richness, and subtlety, this 24-voice ensemble brings a touch of gold to interpretations of Romantic and contemporary choral music.
This season’s program, We Shall Begin to Shine, showcases Alchemy’s versatility and artistry with a cappella and accompanied choral music by Schumann, Brahms, Bruckner, Duruflé, Britten, Vaughan Williams, Mulholland, Thompson, and Clausen. Pianist Allan Conway accompanies.
Tickets: No tickets are required; a free-will offering will be received at this event.
