“Song for Haiti”
Sunday, June 6, 2010 at 5:00 p.m.
Cathedral of St. Joseph, Hartford, Connecticut

On Sunday, June 6, at 5:00 p.m., musicians from the Hartford, New Haven, and Springfield regions will present "Song for Haiti," a concert to raise monies to help rebuild the New Victorian School of music in Haiti, which was destroyed in the January earthquake. The centerpiece of the concert will be the final movement of Beethoven’s Symphony No. 9, the movement that incorporates Schiller’s “Ode to Joy.” Other works on the program will include Mozart’s Ave Verum Corpus, a choral transcription of the “Largo” from Dvorak's Symphony No. 9, Randall Thompson’s Alleluia, a work for organ and brass, and an interfaith hymn. The wonderful dance troupe “Spectrum in Motion” will offer a pre-concert performance at 4:00 p.m.

More information is at the “Song for Haiti” website: http://hccsongforhaiti.org/

D and I will be performing in the festival choir, which includes members of CONCORA, the Hartford Chorale, the Hartt School, and selected church choirs. All involved are donating their time and talent.

We hope that you can attend and support this cause.
