Norfolk Choral Festival

Saturday, August 18 •  4:00PM •  Music Shed

Sponsored by The Yale Institute of Sacred Music

With a first-rate choir and ensemble, coupled with Simon Carrington’s remarkable programming, this concert has always been a highlight of the Norfolk summer. This stunning program showcases a range of choral music from four centuries, and includes works for chorus alone, some with a soloist and some accompanied by a top flight instrumental ensemble — and encompasses everything from majestic beauty, to works of intimacy, and always a piece of great humor and joy. All in the Music Shed’s outstanding acoustics where you’ll hear every detail. You won’t want to miss this one!
