The Boston Conservatory Choruses (Choir, Chorale, and Conductors’ Choir) come together for a shared performance to close the semester. Chorale and Conductors’ Choir present works for choir and strings, including Ludwig van Beethoven’s beloved Elegischer Gesang, a memorial ode written for a dear friend. Conductors’ Choir presents To the Hands, a response by the Pulitzer Prize-winning contemporary composer Caroline Shaw to a work of the baroque composer Dietrich Buxtehude of the same name. Choir shares four works in a preview of its invited showcase performance at the upcoming American Choral Directors Association Eastern Division conference in Boston in February.
