The Canisius College Chorale, under the direction of Frank Scinta, will continue its 2016 Sacred Spaces concert series with a program on Sunday, November 20 at 7:30 p.m. in St. Louis Church, located at Main and Edward streets in downtown Buffalo, NY.
The concert will feature works by Faure, Ticheli, Vivaldi, Whitacre, Dawson and others. Admission is free. Please join us for a lovely evening of great choral music.
Sacred Spaces stems from an idea the choir proposed 10 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.
Now in its 20th 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, Vocalis Chamber Choir, Choirs or Blessed Sacrament Church and St. Louis Church and the Dave Brubeck Quartet.
