The Canisius College Chorale, under the direction of Frank Scinta, will continue its 2016-2017 Sacred Spaces Concert Series with a performance on Sunday, March 26 at 7:30 p.m. in Annunciation Church, 7580 Clinton Street in Elma.
The program is free and open to the public. It will feature works of Vivaldi, Whitacre, Lauridsen, Dawson and many others.
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 40 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 and the Dave Brubeck Quartet.
Please join us for this wonderful collaborative music experience in one of our region’s most historic sanctuaries.
