Review for Greater Middletown Chorale Inc, Middletown, CT, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Artistic director, Joseph D'Eugenio, has now shaped this ensemble for fifteen years. Mr. D'Eugenio elicits the very best out of the singers, and under his direction the group breathes life into both lasting and new choral works. The chorale is currently refining, among others, Benjamin Britten's "Ceremony of Carols" and contemporary arrangements of "I'll Be Home For Christmas" and "It's The Most Wonderful Time of The Year." This year the ensemble shall present a holiday concert in early December. In January the chorale will embark on rehearsals for a commissioned work, a dramatic oratorio entitled: "Letter From Italy, 1944." Bringing a newly commissioned piece into the light is a major undertaking, but this group sees real value in the effort. It is a wonderful musical ensemble that takes on both old and new pieces with such musicality and open-mindedness.
