Camerata and Chorale Fall Concert November 15
SHREVEPORT, LA — The fall concert of Centenary's Camerata and Chorale will be held Tuesday, November 15, at 7:30 p.m. in Feazel Instrumental Hall. Chorale will feature the Flower Songs of Eric Whitacre and Camerata will perform Beethoven's Mass in C.
Soloists for the Beethoven piece are soprano Peyton Davis, alto Amanda Hock, tenor Seth Taylor, and bass Gary Tubbs. Camerata and Chorale are conducted by Dr. Julia Thorn and accompanied by Dr. Gay Grosz and Mrs. Cathy DeRousse.
Camerata, founded in 1983, is the primary academic choral ensemble from the Hurley School of Music. This SATB group of 40 singers is dedicated to quality artistic performances of choral repertoire from all historical periods. The group is primarily voice majors, though membership is open to all Centenary students by audition.
Chorale is the most select choral group at Centenary College. Members of this 16 voice chamber singer ensemble are selected from within Camerata. Entrance is based on an extensive audition consisting of sight-reading, tonal memory, and vocal development. The level of commitment to the choral program is a major consideration in selection for membership in this choir.
The Hurley School of Music offers a variety of ensembles for both music majors and non-music majors.
