Hello everyone!
I am asking for ideas/selections for repertoire that might fit the following criteria:

-Extended work for Chamber Choir with Chamber Orchestra/Instrumental Ensemble
-Moderate difficulty at most; Length 25-35 min give or take.
-Choir: SATB with/without divisi
- Classical to Present re: time period
- Sacred or Secular text
-Orchestra will be made up of all professional musicians. Also, piano and three manual pipe organ are available at venue where concert will take place and can be used in instrumentation.
- Choir will consist of professional singers and skilled amateurs.

Thanks in advance for your suggestions. Let me know if you need any clarification on the above.

Ryan PryslakThanks everyone for the ideas! Just to keep it flowing- any more ideas from 19th, 20th centuries and beyond? Maybe not frequently performed gems?

CORO SAN BENILDO is the resident choral group of the De La Salle-College of Saint Benilde (DLS-CSB) in Manila, Philippines. It was founded in 1990 by a group of students who wanted to serve in the regular Holy Masses in the College. The group then went on to sing intermission numbers during institutional programs.

After being handled by nine conductors from 1995 – 2008, the group is now under the tutelage of Mr. Lorenzo C. Gealogo. Since 2008, the group has been part of numerous performances, bringing with them an innovative and creative showmanship which has earned them various achievements on and off campus.

 RECENT TRAININGS

Aside from Coro San Benildo’s regular rehearsal schedule the group  also attended workshops and trainings from different mentors in the choral industry such as:

  • Choral Clinicing with Mr. Mark Anthony Carpio, Conductor of the Philippine Madrigal Singers in August 2012
  • Swedish Conductor Fred Sjoeberg’s Master Class in February 1 -3, 2013
  • Choral Competition Workshop with Jonathan Velasco, President of the Philippine Choral Directors Association & Conductor of the Ateneo Chamber Singers in June 2015
  • Choral Competition Workshop with Jonathan Velasco, President of the Philippine Choral Directors Association & Conductor of the Ateneo Chamber Singers in June 2016

At present, Coro San Benildo continues to sing, perform and join international choral competitions to represent the school and the Philippines globally, and to promote Choral Music in the Philippines.
