Spirito! Singers featuring their Ragazze and Bravura Ensembles

This event showcases the talented Spirito! Ragazze (5th - 8th grade girls) and Bravura (9th - 12th grade young women) ensembles from the western Chicagoland area. It’s hard to assemble such a large group of young singers for one of our in-person concerts, but now we can share this clip from a Comcast recording of a concert that was shown on an Elmhurst local access station.

Debussy’s "Clair de lune," performed by Chris Garofalo

Five years ago, thanks to a bequest from the Estate of Donald and Mildred Drew, the DGMC donated a new Feurich Concert I grand piano to the Downers Grove Public Library. DGMC dedicated the new piano with a concert intended to show off the new instrument, and the first piece on that program was Debussy’s "Clair de lune," performed by Chris Garofalo. What a fitting way to kick off our our webconcert series!

"Anomalous Liquidity" by Dan Moroz

Chicago saxophonist, composer, and music educator Dan Moroz has a new composition that is a bit on the eerie side – perfect for Halloween. Dan notes he premiered this piece five days before we all went under lockdown due to COVID-19, and it evokes the unsettled feelings we all experienced during the early days of the pandemic.
