Past Seasons

2017

Great poetry has always inspired great choral music. The Winter 2017 season "And the Poet Sings" explored the work of timeless poets as set to innovative music. Among the poets represented were Frost, Whitman, Shakespeare, Donne, and Tennyson, and the composers include Eric Whitacre, Gabriel Faure, Norman Dello Joio, Randall Thompson, and Alice Parker. This concert featured the world premiere of Donne's "Death Be Not Proud" set to the music of Clermont Chorale's own Co-Artistic Director Tim Carpenter!

The Clermont Chorale's Spring 2017 season, "The Great American Songbook," reached back into the amazing history of American popular song to find shining examples  from some of the greatest composers of all time... George Gershwin, Irving Berlin, Cole Porter, and others. We featured songs that have been part of our collective American consciousness, like "Somewhere Over the Rainbow," "God Bless America," and "Yesterday."  There were expressions of love, joy, patriotism, and celebrations of life, in music that we call our own.

The June 4 concert at St. Mark's also featured Cincinnati's up-and-coming jazz vocalist, Natalie Brady, who performed three pieces. She has performed at venues around town such as The Greenwich, Pappadeaux, and The Listing Loon, as well as for private events for companies such as Budweiser and Chase Bank.

 

2016

Our Winter 2016 season, "Masterworks," was a haunting concert of sacred music, including three Renaissance motets by Schutz, Palestrina, and Phillips; Schubert's Mass in G; and "Achieved is the Glorious Work" from The Creation by Haydn.  Several pieces were performed a cappella and 2 with string orchestra.

Spring 2016 brought a return to old CFC favorites in "Heaven & Earth."

2015
"Welcome to the 60s!" was a fun throw-back to classics such as "Let the Sunshine In," "Turn, Turn, Turn," "Iko Iko," and showtunes from classics such as Fiddler on the Roof and Hairspray. A unique twist came in the form of a unique piece from the 60s – the 17- and 1860s, that is – as the CFC performed the oldest recorded piece of music in history.
 
"Into the Light" brought light & warmth to our audiences
This concert celebrated "light:" the sun, coming out of the darkness, and celebrating the light of day and spirit. What a fitting way to bring a little cheer to the cold, dark days of winter. This program featured a wide variety of music from Haydn to Duke Ellington, and beyond! We also performed two selections from this concert at Memorial Hall in downtown Cincinnati as part of the Greater Cincinnati Choral Consortium combined concert. It was great fun to participate with 17 other choral groups from around the region, and to perform in this historic, beautiful space!
2014

"In the Good Ol' Summertime" explored music from medieval times to today!

The theme was summer, and it was great to start rehearsals on this bright, sunny music during one of the coldest, iciest winters in recent memory.  A chorus of over 60 people came together to sing pieces such as the oldest written-down piece of music available, "Sumer is Icumin In," old-time favorites from the roarin' 20s, everyone's favorites, the Beach Boys, and much more.

2013

January, 2013 featured Faith, Hope & Love.  Spring of 2013 we presented a program of Beatles arrangements in a wide variety of styles from a capella rock to madrigal.

In addition to performing this program at UC - Clermont College Kreuger Auditorium, we also performed as an opener for the May Festival, Summerfair at Coney Island, Miami Township's Summer Concert series, Milford's Frontier Days Festival, and the Promont House Art Affaire!

In the winter of 2013, amidst much snow & ice, we presented Benjamin Britten's "A Ceremony of Carols" and a program of other traditional and not-so-traditional British holiday carols. 

2012

After a several-year hiatus, we started up again with A Concert of American Composers on April 27, 2012.  

2007

Our second year found us performing with the Lebanon Symphony and Chorus in Lebanon, OH and the Kentucky Symphony Orchestra and Chorus and the Cincinnati Choral Society.

For our Holiday 2007 Concert, we also held a fundraiser, "Singing With Santa."  The fundraiser and concert were both great fun and very successful, featuring a "singing Santa," carolers and magician Jason Jacobs.

2006

In 2006, we presented two concerts with the Clermont Philharmonic Orchestra.
