Joyful Sounds! 2021 – 2022

Live performances are returning and Commonwealth Chorale has a great year planned! Maestro David Carrier has programmed a superb concert season to celebrate his retirement. Be ready to go for a ride with Paul Revere, pick up a bluegrass banjo, and then sit back and enjoy Bach and Haydn. Our first concert presents nostalgic Americana through the works of Randall Thompson, Gwyneth Walker and Stephen Paulus.  In March, we present a unique and uplifting concert with music by Copland and Barnett. The nationally renowned bluegrass band, Monroe Crossing, will join us in performing Barnett’s The World Beloved: A Bluegrass Mass. For our final concert in May, we return to our classical roots with a performance of Haydn’s Missa in Angustiis (Lord Nelson Mass) and Bach’s Cantata 140 (Wachet auf, ruft uns die Stimme). This is a season not to be missed.
