Choral group Camerata d’Amici is proud to present its spring concert “Hearts All Whole”. Conducted by artistic director Kristin Sponheim, the program will feature music inspired by love and human connection.
The first half of the concert features a number of love songs, from the luminous a cappella work “Song (I gaze upon you)” by Gabriel Jackson to the lighthearted Scottish folk song “O Whistle and I’ll Come To Ye” (poetry by Robert Burns).
The program will continue with a series of songs that convey unity and joy, including “Sure on this Shining Night” (Morten Lauridsen) and the African folk song “Jabula Jesu,” an African folk song, arranged by Stephen Hatfield and accompanied by percussionist Jianpeng Feng. The concert concludes with the uplifting Appalachian tune “Will the Circle Be Unbroken,” arranged by J. David Moore for a cappella choir.
Now in its thirteenth season, Camerata d’Amici is an auditioned choir made up of singers from Fairfield and Westchester counties. “Hearts All Whole” will feature performances by the full group and a select chamber ensemble, men’s and women’s pieces, and vocal solos by baritone Thomas Carr of Danbury, bass Michael Forbes of Ridgefield and soprano Juliet Pratt of Ridgefield, . The choir will be accompanied by instrumentalists Jianpeng Feng (marimba and djembe) and Margarita Nuller (piano).
