Watertown Musica Viva:
Encore!

Sunday, May 3 @ 3 PM

Described as a choral ensemble that presents “excellence” and sings “as one…with difficult and breathtaking harmonies,” Watertown Musica Viva celebrates ten years of music making in the greater Watertown area. This 4- to 8-part chamber choir first appeared in 2010 singing a program titled “An Olde World Christmas.” Subsequent seasons have seen the ensemble perform many of the greatest a cappella compositions from the 16th to the 21st centuries.

 

Repertoire highlights have included Randall Thompson’s The Peaceable Kingdom, Benjamin Britten’s A Ceremony of Carols, Maurice Duruflé’s Quatre Motets, Francis Poulenc’s Quatre Motets, Aaron Copland’s Four Motets, C. Hubert H. Parry’s Songs of Farewell, Richard Bennett’s Five Carols, and Ralph Vaughan Williams’ Five English Folk Songs. The group has performed concerts of folk songs, madrigals, motets, music of darkness and light, love songs, and American choral favorites as well as several concerts in the Christmas and Epiphany seasons.

 

The choir comprises members from all walks of life who share a love of challenging choral music and dedication to high-quality performance.

 

Titled Encore!, this concert will showcase many of the choir’s favorites from the last ten seasons as well as a few new works. From madrigals and motets to music newly composed in the last few years, this concert will have something for all.
