Brookdale Concordia Chorale
After 11 years as the Concordia Chorale, our 60-voice adult chamber choir became the resident chorus at Brookdale Community College in the fall of 2012. It is now the Brookdale Concordia Chorale. September brings us to our 18th season. We rehearse in the Performing Arts Center building at Brookdale Lincroft campus on Monday nights at 8pm. We sing the masterworks of the classical repertory and we have performed a wide range of major works by Bach, Handel and Mozart in particular.
The 2019-2020 season will include:
|Cherubini||Requiem in C Minor (Beethoven’s requested requiem for his funeral)|
|Vaughan Williams||In Windsor Forest|
|Bach||St John Passion|
|Rachmaninov||selections from his Vespers (preparing for our 2021 Portugal/Spain tour)
All-Night Vigil (selections)
|Jackson||Tuskegee Institute Spirituals settings|
We have just completed an incredible concert tour of China! We gave 6 concerts with host choirs in 4 major cities. We visited and sang in Shanghai, Hangzhou, Suzhou and Beijing and the Great Wall. Our host choirs were unbelievably receptive and welcoming. They sang Chinese national music and we sang all-American programs. It was a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
In late June 2021 we are touring Portugal and Spain. 48 hours after announcing this tour we had over 40 reservations! We are still accepting reservations for this wonderful trip. Singers and non-singers!
