The Monmouth Civic Chorus Waxes Poetic
The award-winning Monmouth Civic Chorus (MCC) is thrilled to celebrate the world of poetry as it presents The Poetry of Song. The program, scheduled for Sunday, March 11, 2018, at 3:30pm at Our Lady Star of the Sea Church (101 Chelsea Avenue, Long Branch, NJ) will explore the intersection of music and poetry through the works of several American composers for chorus and chamber orchestra. These include Pulitzer Prize winning composer John Corigliano, New Jersey-based living composer Colin Britt and others. The poetic works of Dylan Thomas, Elizabeth Barrett Browning, Reiner Maria Rilke and more will be featured.
“This concert will take MCC to the limits of its ability to expressively sing great texts,” says the chorus’ Artistic Director Dr. Ryan James Brandau. “The performance is sure to lift and inspire our audience as we seek to bring the luscious words of these great poets to life through our music,” Brandau continued.
