â€‹CONCORA has been praised as â€śone of the premier musical forces in the state,â€ť â€śone of our regionâ€™s priceless musical assets,â€ť and â€śa model of choral artistry.â€ť
For more than four decades, CONCORA has enriched the Greater Hartford area with concerts of beautiful choral music presented by its professional singers. Now in its 43rd season, the ensemble enjoys an extraordinary reputation for artistic excellence throughout New England.
Under the direction of Chris Shepard, now in his third season as Artistic Director, the ensembleâ€™s versatility is displayed in its wide range of repertoire and in the crafting of ensembles from among the choirâ€™s roster of singers to produce an extraordinary range of choral color and dynamic range for each program and performance space.
Choral music has the power to cross cultural boundaries and to move hearts, and CONCORAâ€™s mission to reach a broad and diverse audience extends not only to the choral aficionado, but also to those who may be touched by the beauty of the choral art for the first time.
