Live Concerts

Choral Ensembles Spring Concert

Event Date: 
Monday, May 6, 2013 - 7:30pm

Weston Auditorium

The concert will feature the 37-voice university choir, 11-voice chamber singers and various soloists from Maria Ferante’s campus vocal studio. The student ensemble Harmonic Velocity, led by Jillian Bailey and Theo Demosthenes, will also perform. Faculty member Robin Dinda’s original composition “Perseverantia,” written in honor of the inauguration of university President Robert V. Antonucci, will also be presented. Choral director Marjorie Ness will lead the ensembles.

“These students possess the ability to grasp a variety of styles of music and convey both text and the musical setting with conviction,” said Ness. “I love working with this age group whose pop tastes are pretty sophisticated. To watch them meet music from many generations before and embrace it is wonderful. This concert is balanced with our student-led group Harmonic Velocity who perform in an exciting new way.”

Admission is free and open to the public
