The concert will begin at 4 p.m. in the auditorium of King Philip Middle School, 100 King Philip Drive, West Hartford. Another Octave, Glastonbury High School’s Treble Choir, Hall High School’s Voce di Coeli, and Simsbury High School’s Treble Choir will join the West Hartford Women’s Chorale, for a concert of music arranged for women’s voices. Each group will perform individually, followed by two collaborative pieces.
The concert, in its second year, brings together a combination of musical performances that showcase the beauty and range of women’s voices. This year, discretionary donations will benefit the Bridge Family Center, a West Hartford organization that supports youth and families. “We were thrilled and honored when Karen Bachman, WHWC Board President, notified us that the Bridge would be this year’s concert beneficiary. It’s an honor to be selected and a pleasure to know that these women are generously donating their time and their voices to support local causes,” said Judy Bierly, Director of Community Services and Communications at the Bridge.
The WHWC is a non-audition chorale open to all women. Under the direction of Dr. Ethan Nash, WHWC Music Director, the chorale performs major classical works, as well as traditional, jazz and contemporary music.
