Concert Choir Performs Annual ChoralFest May 4 on Giltz Stage, Hawkins Hall

The SUNY Plattsburgh Department of Music will present the Concert Choir in ChoralFest 2018, “Draw the Circle Wide,” Friday, May 4 at 7:30 p.m. in the E. Glenn Giltz Auditorium, Hawkins Hall.

Concert Choir, the department’s premiere choral ensemble and directed by Jo Ellen Miano, professor of music, will perform a number of choral works, with concluding music that centers on the message to “draw the circle wide.” J.S. Bach’s “Cantata #106” will feature student soloists, chorus and chamber orchestra. 

The choir will also perform Mozart’s “Ave Verum Corpus” with the professional chamber orchestra. “When David Heard” by Renaissance composer Thomas Weelkes, will showcase the a cappella performance of the choir. The women’s voice of the Concert Choir will perform a contemporary setting of Sojourner Truth’s speech given in 1851 in Akron, Ohio. The program closes with Mark A. Miller’s “Draw the Circle Wide.”

This event is free and open to the public.
