Canisius College Chorale Continues Sacred Spaces Concert Series With Performance in Annunciation Church, Elma.

The Canisius College Chorale, under the direction of Frank Scinta, will continue its busy 2013 Sacred Spaces concert series with a program on Monday, November 25 at 7:30 p.m. in Annunciation Church, 7580 Clinton Street, Elma, NY.

Featured will be works by Hogan,Vivaldi, Dawson, Ticheli and others. Admission is free and all are welcome.

Sacred Spaces stems from an idea the choir proposed nine 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 forty houses of worship with its repertoire of sacred and secular music spanning five centuries.

Please join us for a lovely evening of great choral music!

For more information contact Frank Scinta at X 2536 or by email at
