HAMMOND Singers from the campus and community are invited to join the Southeastern Louisiana
University 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 professions across the community, these ensembles regularly perform major works with a professional orchestra and soloists. Past repertoire has 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 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, Jan. 17, 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 Leonard Bernstein’s “Chichester Psalms,” among other works, at the Columbia Theatre for the Performing Arts this spring. Anthony Sears, the new University Chorus and Northshore Chorale conductor, and Rowe will co-conduct the concert.
