The Temple College Chorale will present a “Singer’s Choice” concert on Tuesday, April 4, at 7:30 p.m. in the auditorium of the Mary Alice Marshall Performing Arts Center.
Each song on the program was nominated by a member of the Chorale, and the diverse program spans Baroque to Contemporary choral literature. Classical selections on the program include Copland’s “The Promise of Living,” Faure’s “Cantique de Jean Racine,” Handel’s “Zadok the Priest,” Mendelssohn’s “How Lovely are the Messengers” and Hogan’s arrangement of “Elijah Rock.” Contemporary selections on the program include Orban’s “Daemon Irrepit Callidus,” Rutter’s “Open Thou Mine Eyes” and Martin’s “The Awakening.”
“The fact that these pieces are popular among singers is not at all surprising,” said Director Dr. Sara Harris Baker. “They are challenging, beautiful and fun, and have the kind of melodies that stay with you for life. The audience is in for a treat.”
The 48-voice Temple College Chorale is a hybrid group of Temple College students and community members selected by audition. The accompanist for the group is Wayne Bachus.
Tickets for the concert are $5 general admission or free with Student ID.
