THE ARLINGTON-BELMONT CHORALE and CHAMBER CHORUS RECEIVE CC GRANT AWARDS
In 2018, the Arlington Cultural Council, under the auspices of the Massachusetts Cultural Council, awarded the Arlington-Belmont Chorale a $1000 grant towards the funding of the Chorale’s Almost Spring Concert titled, Through the Glass Ceiling: Six Centuries of Choral Music by Female Composers. This unique choral concert, featuring all women composers, included a small sample of a very rich musical output from various musical periods. The earliest work dates from the late 1500’s. The most recent is a 2017 newly commissioned work, and this concert was its premiere performance. The video of this concert, which was aired on Arlington’s cable TV, can be found at https://youtu.be/pRNcRW8w_C8.
