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

Rating: 5 stars  

Wait til you see what this wonderful group is doing now! After being with this group for five years, I am more enthusiastic than ever that the GMChorale, under Artistic Director, Joseph D'Eugenio, is continuing to elevate the art of vocal performance, building a choral arts organization that fosters people of all ages to enjoy music in their lives. We continue to grow and to excel, reaching new audiences and new performers. This truly is a gift to the community, and offers a place where people can share the experience of live music, conversations spurred on by new collaborations, the healing power of the arts, and the joy of working together.

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

Rating: 5 stars  

When I moved to Connecticut four years ago, my search for a choral group to sing with was a top priority.
Trained as an instrumentalist, but also having sung for the last 20 years, I was looking for a group that tackled serious music, but also one that wasn't too stuffy! I like to hear new music, and this group makes a point of commissioning new works. The premier of a new dramatic oratorio gave us the rare
experience of seeing how the act of creating and collaborating is a transformative experience - for the performers and the audience alike.
(Check out: Letter from Italy, 1944)
Under the masterful and delightful direction of Artistic Director, Joseph D'Eugenio, this is a group that makes fabulous music and has a good time doing it! The members work hard to make it all happen, giving of their time, talent and treasure to keep a good thing getting even better!

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

Rating: 5 stars  

I'm a singing member of the chorale, and recently moved here from another state. I have participated in so many choral groups over the past 25 years, but never have i been in one like the Greater Middletown Chorale! They have that super combination of dedicated members, volunteers and paid professionals, working together for excellence in musicianship, programming and performance. The energy level and personal connections here even persuaded me to become a member of their board. Joe D'Eugenio's leadership and musical talents create a chemistry that shows in the outpouring of the chorus. I love that one of the GMC's core mission objectives is to perform works by new composers. This makes for a group always willing to stretch and open doors to new experiences. You will love hearing this group!!
