New is Old/Old is New: Seven Centuries of Choral Music
Abendmusik will present its Fall concert on November 11, 3:00 p.m. at the Broadmoor Community Church located at 315 Lake Avenue in Colorado Springs.
Entitled New is Old and Old is New, the concert will take its audience on a journey through seven centuries of choral music. The repertoire compares and contrasts the innovation of Renaissance, Baroque and Impressionistic composers (Gesualdo, Monteverdi, Byrd and Purcell, Ravel and Poulenc) with the work of noted 21st Century composers (Jenkins, Esenvalds, Donati and Gjeilo) who have chosen to creatively revisit the innovation and style of masters from the past. This program will provide an eclectic journey through choral music over time that will please all musical tastes and sensibilities.
Abendmusik is an auditioned community choir that has been in existence since 1974. The choir is comprised of accomplished singers and musicians from all walks of life, and includes singers ranging in age from 20’s to 70’s. Abendmusik has been featured a featured performer for the Colorado Music Educators Association (CMEA) on multiple occasions, has toured with the United States Air Force Academy Band, and has made guest appearances with the orchestras throughout the state.
Abendmusik’s local concerts are always open and free to the public.
