ArtsCanisius presents the Harmonia Chamber Singers, directed by Robert Pacillo, tonight (October 29) at 7:30 p.m. in the Montante Cultural Center. The program, entitled “Comedian Harmoniacs,” features the world premiere of Rob Deemer’s Sonnetryptich for chorus, and fun and clever compositions and arrangements of works by Hassler, Swingle, Whitacre, Arlen, Porter and Daley. This concert is free, with a $10 suggested donation to the ensemble.
The Harmonia Chamber Singers is one of Buffalo’s finest singing ensembles and is known for its eclectic mix of a cappella styles. Now in its fifth season, they plan to release their second CD in late Fall.
