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.

Join the FCC as we wrap up our 2018-2019 season with Felix Mendelssohn’s iconic 1846 masterpiece. Widows, queens, priests, prophets, and an angel – Elijah’s vivid biblical narrative has all the drama of an opera. Don’t miss this chance to hear Mendelssohn’s Romantic-era take on the Baroque oratorio.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!
