Welcome to our 2015 - 2016 Season
The mission of CCS is to foster excellent singing and impactful storytelling while engaging communities in the vibrancy of the choral art.
Concord Chamber Singers, under the direction of Dr. Jennifer Kelly, is a 40-voice chamber chorus with high musical standards and friendly, supportive members who sing a diverse repertoire of both classic and contemporary works. CCS encourages flexible, healthy singing to successfully and accurately perform varied composers, genres and styles.
CCS makes conscious decisions that affect and support our greater community. Thank you to our singers, board members, audience, donors, and supporters.
What are people saying about CCS?
"Gabriela Lena Frank's Songs of Cifar and the Sweet Sea is a formidable work, both sonically and visually... An exceptionally poignant tale, intensely dramatic, and beautifully melancholic. Its disparate elements of chorus, soloists, pianists, and string quartet work so well together because they share a similar musical language... It is the strength of the chorus, its unexpected accents and unnerving mixed meters, which adds to the intensity of the work, putting the audience in a place both unfamiliar and threatening." Steve Siegel, The Morning Call, 2014
"When looking for a chorus to join, I knew I wanted to find a group that looks at music the way I do, understanding that music is about building a community, telling stories, and exploring artistic expression. Concord Chamber Singers does just that. This is an ensemble that embraces a diverse repertoire and looks at all music as an opportunity for discovery and growth. I can honestly say that CCS has become my favorite part of Friday nights and my musical family." Kate DeSisto, alto
"The fact that the Concord Chamber Singers, this year celebrating their 46th season, will join the Allentown Symphony Orchestra in July in a hip, cutting-edge 'Video Games Live' concert speaks volumes about where their new director, Jennifer Kelly, plans to take the group in the future. Kelly...will be boldly taking the choir to places where no local choir has gone before." Steve Siegel, The Morning Call, 2013
