CitySingers of Hartford will present Jubilo!, an international celebration of music and the message of peace.
On Saturday, December 10; Friday, December 16; and Saturday, December 17, CitySingers will weave together a program inspired by the joy of the season. Audiences will be enlivened by traditional motets and carols inspired by folksongs from around the world. Organ, harp, woodwinds, cello, festive bells and percussion will augment the program, as will audience participation in the singing of familiar carols. Jubilo! includes works from German, Franch Italian, Basque, Scottish, and English traditions, and will feature excerpts from J.S. Bach's Cantata No. 63, written for Christmas Day.
Under the artistic direction of Suzanne Gates, CitySingers of Hartford offers programs for the communities, in the communities. At this season of peace and renewal, it is a special delight to share this musical celebration with friends and audiences from many heritages!
