The Canisius College Chorale will continue its 2015-2016 “Sacred Spaces” concert series with a program on Sunday, November 22 at 7:30 p.m. in St. Pius X Church, located at 1700 North French Road in Getzville, NY.
The concert will feature works by Hogan, Mendelssohn, Buxtehude, Dawson, Ticheli and others. Admission 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 40 houses 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 the chorale for a lovely evening of great choral music!
