Community singers, students, faculty, and staff invited to join Northshore Chorale
Singers from the campus and community are invited to join the Southeastern Chorus and Northshore Chorale.
Choral singing at Southeastern is enjoyed by music majors and non-majors alike in a variety of different ensembles.
The Northshore Chorale and University Chorus are non-auditioned ensembles comprised of university students and community members. With more than 100 singers from majors throughout the university and a cross section of the community, these ensembles regularly perform major works with a professional orchestra and soloists. Past repertoires have included such choral works as "Mozart's Requiem" and "Mass in C minor," Fauré's "Requiem," Orff's "Carmina Burana," Schubert's "Mass in G," and Vaughan Williams' "Five Mystical Songs," in addition to many other masterworks.
"The purpose of the choirs is for members to experience diverse music as a group at very high standards and to use this music as a vehicle of our expression. Anyone who loves to sing should join us," said Director of Choral Activities Alissa Mercurio Rowe. "Rehearsals are fun, invigorating and educational."
Rehearsals begin Tuesday evening, Aug. 21, at 6:30 p.m. in the choir room of the Pottle Music Building Annex. The ensemble meets each Tuesday night during the semester from 6:30-8:30 p.m.
Rowe said the groups will perform Vivaldi's "Gloria in D Major" RV 588, among other works specifically chosen for the holiday season. Anthony Sears, the University Chorus and Northshore Chorale conductor, will direct the concert.
"A Southeastern alumnus and current teacher/conductor at the Isidore Newman School in New Orleans, Mr. Sears enjoyed phenomenal success last spring with his performance of Leonard Bernstein's 'Chichester Psalms' at Southeastern's Columbia Theatre," said Kenneth Boulton, interim head of Southeastern's Department of Fine and Performing Arts. "All participants can anticipate another spectacular and exciting year of music-making."
