Chorale Continues Sacred Spaces Concert Series

The Canisius College Chorale, under the direction of Frank Scinta, will inaugurate its 2015-2016 Sacred Spaces concert series with a program on Sunday, October 25 at 7:30 p.m. in Fourteen Holy Helpers Church, 1345 Indian Church Road in West Seneca, NY.

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

The Sacred Spaces concert series stems from an idea proposed nine years ago to feature the chorale’s 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 40houses of worship with its repertoire of sacred and secular music spanning five centuries.

Now in its 19th season, the Canisius College Chorale remains one of Western New York’s most active collegiate music ensembles. Composed of 100 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, Amherst Symphony Orchestra, Camerata di Sant’Antonio, Buffalo Philharmonic Chorus and the Dave Brubeck Quartet.

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