Fall concert showcases three choirs and renowned music

The Grove City College Department of Music presents its fall choral concert at 4:30 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 17 in Harbison Chapel.

The Concert Choir will sing Mozart’s triumphant “Coronation Mass,” accompanied by Dr. Bradley Fitch, College organist. The Touring Choir will present a preview of their spring tour program with selections by Hans Leo Hassler, Kim Andre Arnesen and Moses Hogan. The Chamber Singers, a 12-voice a cappella ensemble, will sing selections by Adriano Banchieri, William Byrd and Jean Berger.

The choral ensembles are directed by Dr. Katherine Mueller, assistant professor of Music and director of Choral Activities.

“I’m especially excited to conduct Mozart’s ‘Coronation Mass,’ a new piece for me, and a thrilling example of Mozart at the top of his skills writing for choir,” Mueller said.

The concert is free and open to the public. For more information, contact the Department of Music at Grove City College at 724-458-2088.

The Concert Choir will perform again in the College’s upcoming Christmas Gala at 7:30 p.m. Dec. 6 in Ketler Auditorium, and the Touring Choir sings in the annual Candlelight Services at 6:30 and 8:30 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 8 in Harbison Chapel.
