Our small women's chorus is devoted to exploring the wide variety of classical music, ranging from medieval chant through contemporary compositions, written specifically for women’s voices. Our members are experienced singers who share a commitment to lifelong learning as musicians. In addition to yearly full length concert presentations each year, Concentus performs at several special events in the Greater Rochester and Central New York area.
Concentus is proud to present this compilation of favorite and soon-to-be favorite seasonal carols and Christmas songs, from the early 1500s to recent contemporary compositions and new settings.
“Make We Joy” is a celebration of the holy story from the promise made to Adam and Eve, through the beautiful story of the Magnificat, and onward to the birth of Christ. Revel in the music, as the world sings in celebration of this miracle, and a mother rocks her Child to sleep.
“Audience members noted that your music was ‘transporting’ and ‘ravishing,’ and I couldn't agree more.” (Director of Music, Christ Church, Pittsford, NY)
