Chorale, Chamber Choir to present March 2 concert

02/24/2012
Monmouth College’s Chorale and Chamber Choir will present a choral music concert on March 2 at 7:30 p.m. in the Kasch Performance Hall of the Dahl Chapel and Auditorium.

Free and open to the public, the concert will feature classical music, spirituals, vocal jazz and folk music.

Highlights will include Morten Lauridsen’s “Contre qui, rose,” a setting of “Ave Maria” by Kevin Memley, Hrusovsky’s “Rytmus,” a vocal jazz arrangement of Gershwin’s “Love is Here to Stay” and an arrangement of the traditional spiritual “Rockin’ Jerusalem” by Damon Dandrige.

The Chorale is a highly selective, auditioned mixed choral ensemble that performs regularly on and off campus. The Chamber Choir is a non-auditioned mixed ensemble that rehearses twice a week. Both groups are under the direction of assistant professor of music Tim Pahel. Music lecturer Julia Andrews will accompany the Chorale on two selections.
