"CATHEDRAL CLASSICS" Concert at the Princeton University Chapel June 10
Event Date: June 10, 2012
Posted: May 19, 2012
Location: New Jersey, USA
Choir type: Community Choirs
Presented under the auspices of The Princeton Festival, VOICES Chorale will join forces with the Bucks County Choral Society to create a magnificent 140-voice choir for a collaborative concert Sunday, June 10, 2012, 7:30 pm at the Princeton University Chapel, Princeton, NJ 08540. The program features Poulenc Gloria, with soprano Jane Kamp, Handel's Coronation Anthem No. 4, selections of Rachmaninoff, Howells, Bairstow, and Barber's Agnus Dei, a choral setting of the popular "Adagio for Strings".
Lyn Ransom, VOICES' Music Director, and Thomas Lloyd, BCCS' Artistic Director, will conduct. The prelude on the Chapel's Skinner organ by John Bailey of the Philadelphia Episcopal Cathedral, will include rarely heard works of Nigerian master composer Fela Sowande.
Says Lyn Ransom, "I love working on the music with the singers. They've responded beautifully to the bright rhythms of Poulenc, the rich melodies of Howell's Like as the Hart, the grandeur of Rachmaninoff and Bairstow, and the mystery of Samuel Barber's Agnus Dei . What the singers like, I 've found, audiences usually love. I think that this three-way effort between VOICES, Bucks County Choral Society, and the Princeton Festival will lead to an outstanding concert experience."
