Letter from Italy, 1944
Hartford Chorale and Greater Middletown Chorale
with the Hartford Symphony Orchestra
Joseph D’Eugenio, conducting
Thursday, May 4, 2017
Mortensen Hall, The Bushnell
A soldier’s story told in music: This oratorio is set against the heroic background of the elite 10th Mountain Division’s epic WWII battles. Grammy-nominated Sarah Meneely-Kyder’s lush, varied score brings to life the true story of a soldier and his family bravely facing PTSD in this timely, semi-staged work. A co-production of the GMChorale and Hartford Chorale, the concert features Jack Anthony Pott as the young medic, father, and physician – a role he created in the highly praised 2013 premiere of this work. Joseph D’Eugenio, GMChorale Artistic Director, will lead the two chorales, soloists, and the Hartford Symphony in this riveting production. This single performance is scheduled for Thursday May 4, 2017 at 7:30 pm in the Mortensen Hall at The Bushnell.
