St. James Church to host Caz College Spring Concert

The Cazenovia College Chorale and the College Singers will present their annual spring concert at 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, April 25, at St. James Roman Catholic Church in Cazenovia.

The concert is free and open to the public.

The chorale and singers are directed by Bruce Campbell, and accompanied by pianist Bill Verity.

More than 60 voices will sing selections from John Rutter’s “Requiem,” an African piece, a Caribbean song and two spirituals.

The College Singers will sing Gershwin’s “Summertime” and a spiritual. Members of the Chorale will sing solos from the jazz and gospel repertoire.

“Over the past five years our chorale and steadily grown in numbers and in quality of singing. They have worked diligently on the ‘Requiem’ by John Rutter,” Campbell said. “This piece is one of the most beautiful and uplifting of choral works. Don’t miss this concert.”

The Cazenovia College Chorale welcomes members of the college and the community who love to sing. The group presents two concerts each year, one in the fall semester and another in the spring semester.

In addition, the Chorale performs with Cazenovia High School’s Music Festival each October. Rehearsals for the 2012 fall semester will begin in September.
