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

Rating: 5 stars  

Except for on special occasions, my relationship with The Greater Middletown Chorale is not as a singer. At their request, I've written lyrics for songs composed by my sister, Sarah, most recently the libretto for the oratorio the Chorale will perform next spring. Sarah and I were drawn to the GMC the first time we heard them, not only for the beauty of their sound but also for the quality of their relationship with their music and with the audiences for whom they sing. Under Joe D'Eugenio's direction, they are a group which sings with heart, with a deep understanding of both words and music and the ability to deliver both so as to make what, in my experience, is a completely unique relationship with hearers. They have thrown themselves into our shared undertaking, Letter from Italy: 1944, wholeheartedly, connecting generously and constantly with community veterans in a way that makes them more than just musical benefactors--and that's saying a lot.
