Culture Connect Featured Event
The Pro Arte Singers, with the Pro Arte Festival Chorus, will close their season Sunday, April 26, at 4 p.m. with a concert at the First Presbyterian Church of New Canaan, 178 Oenoke Ridge Road under the direction of Music Director Arthur Sjögren.
Music by Brahms and Rheinberger, a selection of 20th century and traditional South African works and the world premiere of “Ira Agni”, a Pro Arte-commissioned composition by the Swedish composer Michael Waldenby, will be featured. Pro Arte has sung several works by Waldenby, always to great acclaim, and is excited to present this brand new piece.
Concert tickets at $25, or $20 for seniors and students, will be available at the door.
The Pro Arte Singers, distinguished as the region’s only choral group composed entirely of professional singers, is a non-profit ensemble, supported in part by private contributions and public grants including one from the Connecticut Commission on Culture & Tourism.
