2014-2015 will be the Chamber Choir's fiftieth season. It has been a long journey, and like any journey, has had some rough patches. But over the years it has remained a work of affection and good cheer for all concerned. After the performance with the Symphony in November, the choir will launch into an exploration of music written after its founding, 1964.
The concert will be April 25, 2015 at 7:00 P.M. at First Congregational Church of Muskegon. Composers represented on the program will include Ola Gjeilo, Morten Lauridsen, Egil Hovland, Eric Whitacre, Arvo Pärt, and Lloyd Pfautsch among others. This is a stretch for the choir, which has centered its performances mainly in repertoire of the 18th and 19th Centuries, but it is new, interesting, and audience-friendly music. American Musical Theater will occupy a part of the program also. We were surprised to find out how many great musicals have been written since 1964. It's a treasure trove. A reception will follow the concert.
We are doing our best to contact all former members of the Chamber Choir so we can invite them to sing the final number on the program with us. If you are a former member, or know one, please have them contact us so that we may be sure that we have addresses for as many of our alumni as possible.
