The Canisius College Chorale, under the direction of Frank Scinta, will inaugurate its 2012 Sacred Spaces concert series with a program on Sunday, October 21 at 7:30 p.m. in St. Louis Church, Main and Edward Streets in downtown Buffalo. The concert will feature works by Hogan, Hovland, Vivaldi, Dawson and others. Admission is free.
Sacred Spaces stems from an idea the choir proposed eight 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 40 houses of worship with its repertoire of sacred and secular music spanning five centuries.
Now in its fifteenth season, the Canisius College Chorale remains one of Western New York’s most active collegiate music ensembles. Composed of 120 undergraduate and graduate members, the chorale regularly presents concert programs to school, church, and community audiences throughout Western New York and Southern Ontario. In recent years, the Chorale has performed with the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra, Ars Nova Chamber Musicians, Buffalo Philharmonic Chorus and the Dave Brubeck Quartet.
Please join us for a lovely evening of great chorale music!
