The Phantom of First Church returns to give his Halloween-Themed Organ recital. The Phantom has been haunting Cinépolis Luxury Cinema lately. (Did you remember feeling that cold draft in the middle of the last movie you saw there?) He was so taken with the cinematic experience, he plans to include a number of the scariest movie themes as a feature of his upcoming Halloween Organ Recital. All of your favorite scary Halloween music plus a silent film accompanied by the Phantom himself (The 1910 version of Frankenstein). For those younger folks who might feel a little uneasy about some of the night’s festivities, there will be a separate gathering which will include some activities that they would enjoy a little more.

As part of its commitment to presenting new and lesser-known choral music of great quality, the GMChorale presents the local premiere of New Every Morning, a multi-movement choral work by Connecticut composer Peter Niedmann. This setting of joyful texts from two great English churchmen-poets and two Psalms is a rich textual and musical tapestry that is by turns comforting, celebratory, and uplifting. The music dances with pronounced rhythmic underpinnings and shifting meters, sublime harmonies and a cappella sections, and a virtuosic accompaniment that sparkles and enlivens the choral writing. The program also includes evocative choral music by John Rutter, David Conte, Dan Forrest, and James Mulholland. Alan Conway accompanies from the piano.

For more than three decades, the New World Trio has brought the excitement and intimacy of chamber music to live audiences throughout New England.

With each performance, New World brings new vitality to established masterworks; these are paired with contemporary pieces, with each complementing the other in depth and beauty. “…New World has been (Hartford’s) one reliable source of chamber music since its founding…” says the Hartford Courant.
