Event Description

Melodia Women’s Choir, New York’s premier ensemble for women’s choral music led by artistic director Cynthia Powell, announces its 15th anniversary season with Autumn Fire, a program inspired by the fiery colors of autumn and German Romantic composers.

A lovely set of motets by siblings Felix Mendelssohn and Fanny Mendelssohn Hensel will be performed, as well as the harp mass Harfenmesse: Missa Advocata Nostra by Johann Kaspar Aiblinger, and Josef Rheinberger’s ethereal Wie lieblich sind deine Wohnungen, both works featuring harp soloist Rita Costanzi, formerly a principal harpist of the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra and a solo harpist of the CBC Radio Orchestra.

With 15 years of adventurous, fresh and wide-ranging repertoire that offers rarely heard, stylistically diverse works, Melodia has established a reputation as the premier women’s choir of NYC. Called “riveting” by The New York Times and hailed by composers such as Meredith Monk, Hilary Tann and Ronald Perera, Melodia is also committed to nurturing emerging women composers through commissions and performances. Founded by Executive Director Jenny Clarke and Artistic Director Cynthia Powell in 2003, Melodia collaborates with and supports women composers, musicians and performers across a broad musical spectrum.

Thank you.Cheers,Stanley M. Hoffman, Ph.D.…See More
