In Aspire to the Stars, Arlene Sagan asked “If people want to sing Verdi, and have never sung before, where do they go?” BCCO, of course!
Sometimes while rehearsing or performing, I ( or you) might have the experience of magical moment — the harmony is perfect, our voices are all blending, we are really one with each other and the music.
BCCO remains true to its traditions of free concerts and of welcoming singers of all levels and experience, with no auditions. We firmly believe, as we have for 50 years, that everyone should make music!
Over the past four months, more than 200 choristers have been working hard to get ready for our spring 2015 concerts — three performances of Giuseppe Verdi’s dynamic Messa da Requiem. Bold, lyrical, inspiring — Verdi’s Requiem is a joy for musicians and audiences alike.
