Quintet from Cordus Mundi to Sing at New Hope-Solebury, PA Library
Date: August 11, 2012
Location: Pennsylvania, USA
Free Library of New Hope & Solebury director Connie Hillman has announced a summer mini-concert with musical entertainment for the whole family, to be held in the early evening on the front lawn of the library. The performance, on Wednesday, August 15 at 7:30 p.m., features a quintet comprised of members of popular Bucks County-based male a cappella group Cordus Mundi. In case of inclement weather, the mini-concert will be moved indoors.
Since its east coast inception in January, 2005, Cordus Mundi has steadily built a strong reputation in the Bucks and Montgomery County areas for quality, originality, and musicality. The full group currently numbers fifteen singers, with conducting duties shared by music director Dave Fryling and artistic director/founder Rick Rosen. Rosen also teaches the Young Songwriters Clubs program at the library each summer.
Musical selections for this early evening performance will include several favorite pieces from the widely varied Cordus Mundi repertoire. The mini-concert’s unique ”Cordus Quintet” includes tenor John Leslie from Levittown, baritone Peter Scarpato from Yardley, and New Hope residents Tony Fazey (tenor), Christopher Whitney (tenor), and founder Rosen (bass).
“The library is pleased to offer community-based programs that focus on arts and culture, and we hope to present more programs like this in the future,” notes Hillman. “Be sure to stay tuned for more family friendly activities at the library.”
The Free Library of New Hope & Solebury is located at 93 West Ferry Street in New Hope. For additional information about this concert and other activities, contact the library at 215.862.2330.
