You Don't Need to Take My Word for It...

.
...when the classical music expert at The Hartford Courant says so, too.


About what? About giving CONCORA tickets as holiday gifts, of course!


In today's edition of The Hartford Courant, classical music critic Jeffrey Johnson says:
Listening to Bach makes you smarter. Your [friends] would ... love the annual Bach event given by CONCORA in collaboration with the Hartford Symphony in the Immanuel Congregational Church, 10 Woodland St., Hartford. The program will feature the Magnificat (BWV 243), Cantata 1 "Wie schoen leuchtet der Morgenstern!" and the Concerto in D Minor for Harpsichord (BWV 1052) with HSO harpsichordist Margreet Francis. The concert is March 25 at 4 p.m. Tickets are $$20 to $45; $10 for students. Information:l 860-244-0073 or http://www.concora.org/.

Right he is! The annual Bach program with the HSO is to die for.


If you and your music-loving friends just can't wait until March to hear CONCORA's extraordinary singing, treat yourself, and them, to an early Christmas gift: tickets to CONCORA's holiday program, "Christmas Through the Ages."
