Drawing choirs from colleges across the state, the Intercollegiate Choral Festival is a special opportunity for programs to join forces and sing sections of a major work with instrumental accompaniment, all the while working with an esteemed choral conductor. The all-day festival offers a chance to connect with professionals and other area students who love to sing. Ensembles will also have the opportunity to perform for each other in a communal “informance” during the afternoon.
Der Herr denket an uns, BWV 196 – J.S. Bach
Kyrie and Gloria from Missa in Angustiis (“Nelson Mass”) – F.J. Haydn
