Boston Conservatory Chorale and Choir present the annual fall concert, traditionally taking place at Family and Friends Weekend. Following more than a year of virtual music-making, this concert is the first to feature both full ensembles in person since February 2020. Chorale and choir share works exploring nighttime and the literal and figurative dawn. Chorale’s program includes contemporary works by British baritone and composer Roderick Williams and Venezuelan composer Modesta Bor, as well as beloved choral favorites by Claudio Monteverdi, Ralph Vaughan Williams, and Samuel Barber. Choir performs traditional repertoire by Franz Schubert and Gabriel Fauré, as well as selections by contemporary composers Joan Szymko, Christine Donkin, and Jake Runestad.

Nathan Reiff, music director
Joe Turbessi, piano

The public is invited to watch the livestream. The in-person performance in Seully Hall is only open to the Berklee community (students, faculty, staff) and invited guests.
