Arts & Culture Highlights


Cappella Clausura Shares a Virtual Concert

Cappella Clausura performs "Magnificat," a spectacular work by one of the most talented nuns of the Italian Baroque, Chiara Margarita Cozzolani (1602-c.1678). Cozzolani was the abbess of Santa Radegonda in Milan and composer of the Vespers of 1650, motets, and many concerti sacri for solo, duo, trio, and more. This work was recorded by each individual musician, using the conductor's video together with the continuo (theorbo) player's video. Video master, NCA Board Member Christopher Pitts, and audio engineer, James Zaner, do a masterful job of putting 18 complex parts together. Enjoy!


Get to Know the Allen House

The historic Nathaniel Allen House, an eight-year, collaborative facility project of the Newton Cultural Alliance, will open its doors shortly. Conceived as Newton's arts and cultural hub, construction will be complete by fall and the NCA and its member organizations will begin to host wonderful creative opportunities for the entire community. Click the button below to watch a brief video of the development of this house and barn, home of Nathaniel Allen, the prominent progressive educator of the 1800s and his family for nearly a century.
