The Canisius College Chorale, under the direction of Frank Scinta, will continue its 2011-2012 Sacred Spaces Concert Series with a performance on Monday (February 27) at 7:30 p.m. in St. Margaret’s Church, 1395 Hertel Avenue.
The program, which will feature works of Mendelssohn, Lotti, Lauridsen, Bernstein, Dawson and others, is free and open to the public.
Sacred Spaces stems from an idea the choir proposed six years ago to feature its music in some of Western New York’s most beautiful and acoustically resonant environments – namely, the sanctuaries of our region’s present and former churches. As a result, the choir has visited nearly 30 houses of worship with its repertoire of sacred and secular music spanning five centuries.
