At the Forks
Concord Chamber Singers is excited to be singing at First Presbyterian Church of Easton in Easton, Pennsylvania for our spring concert, "At the Forks", on Sunday April 7, 2019 at 3 p.m.
At The Forks honors and celebrates the shared narrative created by the many cultures that make up the Lehigh Valley. Featuring the premiere of a new major work by Libby Larsen for tenor soloist, chorus, orchestra, and folk instruments, the concert features Emmet Cahill of Celtic Thunder, Concord Chamber Singers of the Lehigh Valley, Lafayette College Chamber Singers, and professional chamber orchestra.
The 90-minute concert is in three parts:
1) music that represents the pride expressed in varied culture's music
2) a representation of the many feelings one may have when they leave one place and become a part of a new place
3) Libby Larsen's major work that represents a shared narrative of our Lehigh Valley experience.
There will be a pre-concert lecture at 2 p.m. with composer Libby Larsen, conductor Jennifer Kelly, and a representative from the Sigal Museum. Concert begins at 3 p.m. with a post-concert reception to follow.
The concert is sponsored in part by the Lafayette Alumni Chorus (LAC), The Hearst Foundations, the Pennsylvania Council On The Arts, and the Lehigh Valley Engaged Humanities Consortium (LVEHC) as supported by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
We are happy to be partnering with the Sigal Museum and the Delaware & Lehigh National Heritage Corridor's National Canal Museum, both of Easton, Pennsylvania.
Tickets are $20 general admission and $10 students. Tickets will be available for purchase soon.
