“Storytime” with Choral Chameleon

Posted by David Vita on Monday, February 18, 2019 at 4:11 PM

The award-winning 10-voice vocal ensemble, Choral Chameleon, returns to Westport to take you on a whimsical journey through the magic of choral storytelling.  The performance will take place at The Unitarian Church in Westport, located at 10 Lyons Plains Road, Westport on Saturday, February 23 at 7:30pm.  Tickets, $20 for adults and $10 for 18 and under can be purchased online at https://uuwestport.org/choral-chameleon-concert/ or at the door.

Harnessing powerful commentary in the style of the Greek chorus combined with the beauty and empathy of human singing, this unique performance will narrate rich life stories, of both a sacred and a secular ilk, through the lenses of composers from across five centuries, including: Mateo Flecha el Viejo, Josquin des Prez, The Beatles, and others.

The program will also feature two new commissions: “Footnotes to a History of Music” by 2018-2019 Composer-In-Residence, Dale Trumbore and an arrangement of “The Gambler” by the band FUN by Michelle Coladonato. Mark your calendar now for a concert experience you won’t forget!
