Connecticut Choral Society Presents Mass of the Children at Trinity Episcopal Church, Newtown, CT
June 10 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
Please join us on Saturday, June 10, 2023 at 7:30 PM. The Connecticut Choral Society in partnership with Trinity Episcopal Church Newtown, CT presents John Rutter’s Mass of the Children Benefit Concert for Newtown Youth & Family Services.* This beautiful piece of music was written in response to a desire to compose a work that would bring children and adults together, in the same way that performances of Britten’s War Requiem had done for him when a school chorister.
Under the direction of Eric Dale Knapp, the Connecticut Choral Society will be joined by the festival chorus and these very talented artists: Jennifer Sisco, soprano ~ Nina Porretta, soloist ~ Daisy Lowe, soprano ~ Peter Kendall Clark, baritone ~ Miriam Liske-Doorandish, cello ~ Linda Sweetman-Waters, organ. Singers and choirs from across Western Connecticut are invited to sing as part of the festival chorus as we present music of hope for a brighter tomorrow.

Admission is free with a $20 per person suggested donation at the door in support of Newtown Youth & Family Services.*
