    With the Connecticut Master Chorale Orchestra

    Spring 2025 Concert

    Date To Be Announced
    First Congregational Church, Danbury, CT

    Released in 2022, Illuminare is an "illuminating" new work that is exquisitely gorgeous and gloriously uplifting. It is the first major work by Hagenberg, whose music has been described as "soars with eloquence and ingenuity."

    Using lesser-known sacred Latin, Greek, and English texts, the piece takes us through a season of beauty and goodness that has been disrupted by darkness and confusion. But as Light gradually returns, hope is restored, illuminating our future and guiding us in peace.

    Elaine and Dan Forrest (and their music) team up at many concerts, choral conferences, and festivals.

    Rounding out the program will be another major work.
