Clare College Choir at Northern Illinois University Sept 23

Location: Illinois, USA
When:  Thursday September 23, 8:00 PM
Where: Boutell Memorial Concert Hall, NIU School of Music, DeKalb IL
World renown choir from Cambridge England will present a  FREE concert of English choral music and more!.  Under the direction of Timothy Brown, the Clare College Chapel Choir will present works by Renaissance masters such as Christopher Tye, Thomas Tomkins, and William Byrd as well as contemporary works by Herbert Howells and Einojuhani Rautavaara. 
Since the founding of a mixed voice choir in 1971, the Choir of Clare College has gained an international reputation as one of the leading university choral groups in England.  In addition to its primary function of leading services three times a week in the College chapel, the choir keeps an active schedule recording, broadcasting, and performing throughout the UK and the world.
Led by its Director of Music, Timothy Brown, the choir has toured widely, including in Europe, the United States of America, Japan, China, Russia, and the Middle East.  In 2000 it became the first Oxbridge mixed choir to perform at the BBC Proms, singing Bach's St John Passion. At Easter 2002 the choir took part in a sell-out tour to Spain, Belgium, the UK and the USA, performing Handel's oratorio Jephtha with the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment, directed by René Jacobs.  The New York Times wrote about the 'brilliant execution' and 'distinctive sense of character' of the choir's contribution.
