The Canisius College Chorale, under the direction of Frank Scinta, will continue its 2010-2011 “Sacred Spaces” concert series with a performance on Monday (February 28) at 7:30 p.m. in All Saints Church, Esser Avenue at Henrietta Street, Buffalo.  The Chorale’s appearance celebrates the centennial of the founding of All Saints’ Church.

The program will feature works of Mendelssohn, Lotti, Lauridsen, Bernstein, Dawson and others. Admission is free.

“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 area’s churches.  As a result, the choir has visited nearly thirty houses of worship with its repertoire of sacred and secular music spanning five centuries.
