Chorale Launches Spring Season, Invites New Members

The Canisius College Chorale invites students, faculty and staff to join its ranks for the upcoming Spring season of concerts.  The group’s first rehearsal will be Monday (January 23) at 6:30 p.m. in the Montante Cultural Center.  Rehearsals will continue each Monday evening at the same time.

Auditions are not necessary for membership and all are welcome. The course numbers for Chorale are FAM 181 (CRN: 40136) for 1 credit and FAM 171 (CRN: 40133) for 0 credit.

The Chorale ended a very successful Fall season that included performances throughout Western New York.  Its acclaimed “Sacred Spaces” series brought hosts of eager listeners to a number of the region’s most beautiful and historic churches.  And the choir’s annual Winter Concert drew a capacity audience to the college’s Montante Cultural Center again this year.  The coming season’s activities include performances in some of the region’s finest concert venues.
