A great way to lift your spirits in the dark of winter, this concert will feature the children singing holiday classics such as Angels We Have Heard on High, Ocho Kandelikas, Feliz Navidad, and Schubert’s Ave Maria. In addition, we will mark renowned British composer Benjamin Britten’s 100th birthday with a selection of his songs for choir. Paul Halley’s Freedom Trilogy and a potpourri of stirring Spanish music will round out the afternoon. Come catch that holiday feeling as you hear 300 children sing!
Many of Connecticut’s best student soloists will step into the spotlight when the FCCC raises the curtain on this year’s selection of Broadway show-stoppers! We are pleased to present favorites from hit musicals The Lion King, Godspell, The Sound of Music and Secret Garden. In addition to rousing choruses and poignant solos, the fantastic FCCC orchestra will join us on stage and add its own pizzazz to the evening! Join us! Tap your toes and hum along with these appealing musical theater hits.
The composers who gave rise to what has become known as the Great American Songbook translated positive values and an optimistic spirit into the soundtrack of American life. Their songs offered hope of better days during the Great Depression, built morale during two world wars, and helped build social bridges within our culture. The FCCC is proud to feature songs from this inspirational body of work, produced by such familiar tunesmiths as George Gershwin, Irving Berlin, Jerome Kern, Cole Porter, Harold Arlen, and Richard Rodgers. We invite you to experience with us the positive power of singing these uniquely American songs.
