Norfolk Chamber Music Festival

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! Simon Carrington Director | conductor, Emily Donato soprano, Ilya Poletaev Associate Director | keyboards, Jacques Lee Wood, cello with the Norfolk Festival Chamber Choir and Orchestra Tickets: $60 – $20, $10 (Young Adults 19-35), and Kids Come Free!
