NVCC Choir Featured in Concert at Saint Thomas More Chapel at Yale

Waterbury, Conn. – The Naugatuck Valley Community College choir, under the direction of Dr. Richard Gard, will feature Daniel Corr, guitarist and Gateway Community College music faculty in a concert entitled “Cultivating Community,” on Friday, April 30 at 8:00 pm at the Saint Thomas More Center at Yale.

The concert features Corr in Romancero Gitano, an exciting work composed for guitar and choir by Manuel Castelnuovo-Tedesco set to seven poems by Federico Garcia-Lorca and sung in Castilian Spanish.

Additional pieces include Songs of Sorrow and Hope, a new composition by Stephen Feigenbaum, a Yale student, which was commissioned by and in honor of German concentration camp survivors, featuring pianist Brian Parks; Songs of Ghana, with drummers and dancers from Wesleyan University; Debussy’s Beau Soir, arranged for chorus by Gard; and The Meditations of Li Po, an outstanding contemplative piece by American composer Stephen Paulus.

This concert is free and open to the public.

Gard and Corr, graduates of the Yale School of Music, bring their talents to the community colleges. This concert marks the second time that the two community colleges have collaborated in the arts.

Saint Thomas More Chapel and Center at Yale is located at 268 Park Street, New Haven.
