Music Interviews

Conversations with the performers, the conductors, the composers and other people instrumental in creating today's live and recorded classical music.

The pandemic forced us to put many things on hold, including last year's summer choral festival created by conductor Constance Chase and organist Galen Tate.  The festival, Return to Singing, will present a concert on Sunday, August 29. Auditions for the chorus are open to all, and rehearsals begin on Wednesday, July 7. Kate Remington talks with Connie and Galen about getting the festival off the ground, and the music to be performed.

Soprano Lisa Williamson is passionate about the music of Black American women composers.  On Sunday, July 4, she performs songs by Margaret Bonds and Florence Price with members of the New Haven Symphony Orchestra.  Kate Remington talks with her about what makes these women so remarkable.
