Pre-Concert Dinner/Buffet for $60 at 6:00 p.m. at the Elm City Club’s Q Clubhouse, 221 Church Street.

On Saturday, April 23 at 8pm we revisit 1816 and bring the early 19th century back to musical life. Join the Trinity Choirs of Boys, Girls & Men and Orchestra New England as they celebrate 200 years of the presence of our Episcopal gothic treasure on the NH Green.

This costumed – and a bit magical – extravaganza, reminiscent of ONE’s famous Colonial Concert, will be complete with New Haven dignitaries of the historical period, as it explores the music of Schubert, Mendelssohn, Rossini, Handel and Mozart. The Triumph of Tolerance: A Musical Celebration features Mayor Toni Harp, US Rep. Rosa DeLauro, Frances “Bitsie” Clark, Michael Morand and a number of other guests portraying historical figures from 1816.
