Chameleonic: WAKEFUL & WINTRY Holiday Concert

  • St. Paul's Episcopal Church

ECMC friends Chameleonic will present their WAKEFUL & WINTRY Holiday Concert Series  on Monday, December 14th, 2015 at 7:30 p.m. at St. Paul's Episcopal Church in Carroll Gardens, Brooklyn.

Just as Spring looks different through Vivaldi's eyes than it does through Stravinsky's, the winter holidays look different in beautiful New York City than they do anywhere else. A metropolitan Christmas is a special one that can't be compared. The vast and sleepless city of eight million changes its air and becomes a little more caring, a little more loving and a little more personal than at other times. From the echoing halls and corridors of Manhattan, in the rush of day or lit up at night, any moment is a New York Moment at Christmas. This momentariness is captured eloquently and equally in the music of Bach, Mathias, Sondheim, Corigliano, Billings and more.

For tickets, please visit Chameleonic's website at http://www.chameleonicnyc.org/current-season.html


About Chameleonic

People Music: For the People, By the People.

Chameleonic, now in its fourth season, was founded in 2012 by Vince Peterson and several members of the celebrated NYC-based vocal ensemble, Choral Chameleon.  Our purpose is to challenge the traditional boundaries of choral music concert programming, and to cultivate the most style-savvy and technically sound singers, and to use the music of human voices as a vehicle for social justice and healing in the world.  

Our 30-40 auditioned, volunteer members represent all five boroughs of New York City and a joyful tapestry of cultures and musical backgrounds from theatre, to opera, to contemporary, popular, and obscure sensibilities.  The choir is often co-led through the rehearsal and performance process by Vince Peterson in tandem with other professional musicians from the Choral Chameleon roster who sing, conduct, play, write, arrange, and administer - all on a volunteer basis.  

Chameleonic singers are some of the most open-minded in the City. We're very open to trying new things. Our members are used to performing in Manhattan, Brooklyn and Queens, have been hired for the UpFronts for The Weather Channel and as a pop-up choir for Oreos. We've featured in off-Broadway productions of 'The Events' at New York Theater Workshop and 'The Christians' at Playwrights Horizons.  Dare us try anything and we'll probably say yes. Drop us a line!

Within our own family, we have also presented concerts jointly with Choral Chameleon and collaborated with the The Empire City Men's Chorus and the choir of St Paul's Carroll Street in the March 2015 Choral Chameleon production of the US Premiere of Roxanna Panufnik's innovative and theatrical piece, "Dance of Life -Tallinn Mass" at the DiMenna Center.

In Summer 2015, Chameleonic hosted it's very first Summer Sing in Brooklyn - we invited New York's choral community to let off some steam away from all the Requiems and Magnificats with a lively sight-sing of Misa Criolla by Ariel Ramirez. Click on our Facebook link and you'll find some video of it.

Choral Chameleon, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) non-profit which manages The Choral Chameleon professional vocal ensemble, Chameleonic and The Choral Chameleon Summer Institute (for composers and conductors of choral music).

About Stonewall Chorale

Based in New York City, the Stonewall Chorale is the nation's first gay and lesbian chorus. Our mission is to enrich people's lives through learning and performing beautiful choral music, and to nurture and celebrate the community we create together. 

The Chorale originated in December 1977 as the Gotham Male Chorus, and specialized in Gregorian Chant and Renaissance music. In 1979, women joined the chorus for the first time, and the name was changed to Stonewall Chorale, the nation’s first Lesbian and Gay chorus.

Today, Cynthia Powell leads us as our Artistic Director and we typically perform three concerts each year and make appearances at special events throughout the tri-state area.
