Songs of Tribute

John Rutter’s memorial tribute to his son and

G. F. Handel’s festive anthems written for the coronation of King George I



On Sunday, March 18, 2012, audiences will be inspired by a unique intergenerational performance of John Rutter’s Mass for Children, written in memory of his son and two of G. F. Handel’s Coronation Anthems: The King Shall Rejoice and Zadok the Priest. Each work is scored for choir and orchestra, and the performance will be under the artistic direction of Guest Conductor, Bert Landman, who is Director of Music at Trinity Episcopal Church, Hartford.

This special collaboration brings together two musical organizations that are helping to strengthen our community through the arts. CitySingers of Hartford brings together singers from a variety of professional and vocational backgrounds to offer performances to the communities, in the communities. The Choir School of Hartford offers professional choral training; free private piano instruction; instruction in music theory; programs to develop leadership, social, teamwork, and life skills; and a mentoring program to support students in the community throughout their school years and to assist them in preparing for college.                     .
