Union College Festival of Polychoral Music, April 28, 7pm

Location: New York, USA
Choir type: College and University Choirs
Voicing: Mixed
Union College Festival of Polychoral Music
Memorial Chapel, 807 Union Street, Schenectady NY
7:00pm Saturday, April 28, 2012
 
This festival was created to bring together collegaite choirs from New York's greater capitol district in order to perform music writen for multiple choirs.  Repertoire for 3+ choirs is rarely performed due to obvious logistical difficulties.  By assigning each participating school a managable a4 portion of these large-scale works, smaller schools who might not attempt this repertoire on their own are able to perform it and endulge in what some musicologists have called the "Colossal" style.  In future years we hope to perform music for 4, 5, and 6 choirs by Malvezzeti, Benvolio, A. and G. Gabrieli, and Striggio.  This year's participating schools are:
 
College of St. Rose Madrigal Singers (MS), directed by Dr. Michael Lister
Schenectady County Community College Chorus (SC), directed by Dr. Yiping Wu
Union College Camerata Singers (UC), directed by John K. Cox
