Making musical history ~
performing today's music now!
The Adesso Choral Society is a select chamber chorus that places special emphasis on performing new music by living composers.
Founded in 2001 by director Margaret Collins Stoop
, Adesso has performed music of many eras and genres at concerts throughout the Fairfield County, CT area. Programs have included new works from local composers including Allen Brings, Ken Steen, Michael La Barre, Robert Baksa, Evelyn Avoglia
, Jay Gach, Patricia King, Leonard Lehrman and Margaret Collins Stoop, as well as newly arranged folks songs from South Africa, Korea, England, Appalachia, Finland and North Argentina. Seminal works by Kodaly, Poulenc, Barber, Mozart, Bach, Thompson and Faure have also been performed.
"Every work on the program had substance and was well crafted. Although
I’d love to focus attention on the works and their composers, I
especially want to commend the choral ensemble..., as well as the group's highly accomplished pianist. It is a labor of love and a real gift to both our local
community and the development of new vocal literature in our time."
