Attend the Canisius College Chorale’s Latest “Sacred Spaces” Concert

The Canisius College Chorale, under the direction of Frank Scinta, will continue its 2014-2015 Sacred Spaces concert series with a program on Monday, March 30 at 7:30 p.m. in St. Benedict Church, located at 1317 Eggert Road (at Main) in Eggertsville, NY.

The concert will feature works by Hogan, Mendelssohn, Buxtehude, Dawson, Ticheli and others. Admission to the event is free.

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 40 houses of worship with its repertoire of sacred and secular music spanning five centuries.

Please join us for an evening of great choral singing!
