About the Concert

This concert of choral favorites is set up as a series of dialogues pairing works that resonate with one another, either because of their history, a personal connection between their composers, their subject matter, or some other connection that resounds across the ages.

Health & Safety

Harmonia musicians all have up-to-date vaccination status and those performing without masks undergo testing prior to each performance. We ask that in-person audience members be up to date with their vaccinations to the extent they are able (although vaccine cards will no longer be checked at the door). All attendees are strongly encouraged to wear a mask during the performance. (These policies are subject to change throughout the season based on local health guidelines and mandates, as well as the policies of the venues at which we perform.)
