It is part of the church’s Fine Arts Concert Series. The Chorale will be performing several works of Norwegian Composer Ola Gjeilo, who composes contemporary works for chorus and piano. Artistic Director and Organ Artist Paul Shellhammer III will direct the Chorale and also perform on the organ. There is no admissions fee, however, donations are gratefully accepted.
The ACCMS Chorale will be singing at Carnegie Hall in New York City on April 22nd, 2024 as part of a combined choir performing Mr. Geilo’s most recent work, “Twilight Mass” which debuted at Carnegie Hall in November, 2023. After the NYC performance, the Chorale will be performing the “Twilight Mass” as a Thank You Concert this spring for the Ashtabula Community; details to be announced. Spring Fundraisers for the NYC trip include an Art Exhibition/Silent Auction at the Conneaut Arts Center on March 9th. The exhibition will feature donations of original artwork by area artists and additional pieces donated by ACCMS Members and Friends. Proceeds will help defray costs for the NYC trip in April.
