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

Rating: 5 stars  

About a dozen years ago, I was hired as the chorale's first Administrative Director and working in that post for a number of years to streamline chorale activities and to assist with the chorale's first Strategic Plan. As time went on, I also began to sing with the chorale and still later my wife joined to sing, as well. We have both remarked that our experience singing with the chorale has greatly enriched our lives in so many ways. One of the tasks I took on was to organize the chorale's two European trips; the first to Vienna, Salzburg and Prague and the second to Italy where we sang in Rome, Florence and Venice. Both trips were truly awesome and we were greeted with warm applause in all venues and, in retrospect, I feel that both the audiences and the chorale experienced some magical musical moments which many of us will never forget. In order to feel those magical moments both here and abroad, the expert leadership of our Artistic Director, Joseph D'Eugenio has taught us so well and inspired us to new and different heights and fostered many adventures. The rigorous rehearsals and fine-tuning we are treated to assure that our audiences receive the highest quality of sound and interpretation of the many masterworks and newly commissioned compositions require. Being part of this wonderfully diverse group has evolved into a "family" of sorts, one we truly love and enjoy. Tuesday night rehearsals are in a word, exhilarating! As a 'senior citizen', I can attest to the fact that being involved in great choral singing is life-giving and renewing!
