We’re a month away from the second concert of our 2018 season — our celebration of Leonard Bernstein’s 100th birthday, coming up on March 10. We’ve been hard at work rehearsing Bernstein’s Chichester Psalms, a challenging piece performed entirely in Hebrew, along with selections from his 1956 operetta, Candide. Rounding out the evening’s program are selections from Dvořák and Bruckner. We can’t wait to share it with you! Tickets here.

Our upcoming season really does have something for everyone – from Carl Orff’s raucous Carmina Burana (with the acclaimed New Haven Symphony Orchestra to kick off Maestro Boughton’s final season in New Haven), to Mendelssohn’s iconic Elijah, and everything in between. We hope you’ll join us!Details and tickets
This is the second time I’ve heard FCC perform Carmina Burana, and last evening certainly lived up to my memory of how well it was performed the last time. It is such a difficult piece rhythmically that I am impressed with the ease with which FCC went through it. In my opinion, there is nothing better than a wonderful night of great music to start the holiday season, so thank you so much!
