Upcoming Concerts at FPC…
Saturday, October 29, 4:00pm – Arthur Sjögren Memorial Concert
A memorial concert is being planned by the family and friends of the late Maestro, Arthur Sjögren. Art was a world-renowned choral conductor known and beloved by many in our community. As Director of Vocal Music at New Canaan High School from 1975-2008, Art formed the New Canaan Madrigal Singers and led the ensemble on 23 tours around the world. In 1974 Art founded the Pro Arte Singers as the first fully professional choral group in Fairfield County and served as its Director until 2017. From 2010 to 2020, Art was Artistic Director of Charis Chamber Voices in Westchester, New York. All of these groups performed in our sanctuary. In addition, Art served as our own Interim Director of Music in 2015.
The concert, in loving memory of Art, will include performances by Pro Arte Singers, Charis Chamber Singers and more. More details to come!
FPCNC is blessed to have exceptional acoustics for music-making!
In addition to our Sunday morning worship choir we have about 10+ large-scale concerts from organizations around the community for choir and orchestra per year. We are proud to showcase the Charis Chamber Voices for concerts and rehearsals, New Canaan Chamber Music, Orchestra Lumos (formerly Stamford Symphony) and the New Canaan High School youth choir throughout the year. FPCNC was honored to be the home for Fairfield County’s celebrated all-professional chorus, The Pro Arte Singers, directed by Maestro Arthur Sjögren.
