MASS OF THE CHILDREN
A benefit concert for Newtown Youth & Family Services
The Connecticut Choral Society and Trinity Episcopal Church are proud to present John Rutter's "Mass of the Children" as a benefit concert for Newtown Youth and Family Services. This special event aims to bring the community together through the power of music and support the important work of Newtown Youth & Family Services in providing mental health and counseling services to the youth and families of Newtown, CT.
"Mass of the Children" is a beautiful and poignant choral composition by renowned British composer John Rutter. It combines the traditional Latin text of the Mass with additional English lyrics, including poetry by Thomas Moore, to create a moving musical experience that is both uplifting and reflective. The piece features lush harmonies, soaring melodies, and rich orchestrations, making it a joy to perform and a treat to hear.
The concert will be held at Trinity Episcopal Church, a historic and acoustically stunning venue located in the heart of Newtown. The Connecticut Choral Society, a highly regarded choral ensemble with a long-standing tradition of excellence, will be joined by talented soloists and musicians to bring Rutter's "Mass of the Children" to life. The performance promises to be a captivating and emotional experience for all who attend.
By attending this benefit concert, you will not only be treated to a remarkable musical performance, but you will also be supporting Newtown Youth and Family Services, a vital organization that provides mental health and counseling services to those in need in the Newtown community. Your donation at the door will go directly to supporting their important work in promoting the well-being and resilience of the youth and families they serve.
Join us for this special event as we come together through music to support Newtown Youth & Family Services and honor the Newtown community. Your presence and support will make a meaningful difference in the lives of those who are in need of mental health and counseling services, and your experience of John Rutter's "Mass of the Children" will be a moving and memorable one.
