For the first time in recent history, the College of the Holy Cross’ Chamber Orchestra, College Choir, and Chamber Singers will perform together on Wednesday, March 12 at 8 p.m. in St. Joseph Memorial Chapel. The performance’s program, “Classics,”  will include works by Mozart, Brahms, and Gershwin, and performances by special guests from Beaver Country Day School Concert Chorus. The concert is free, open to the public, and handicap-accessible.

“About five years ago, there was one Chamber Singers concert accompanied by the Chamber Orchestra in Brooks Concert Hall, conducted by Brooks Scholar Gregory Geehern ‘06,” says Eric Culver, director of the chamber orchestra and a lecturer in the music department, who has been at the College since 1998. “This is the first time, however, that we have shared a concert in the Chapel, with both music directors sharing the program.”

In the music world, “classics” has become a catch-all term for European composers, performers, and audiences. This concert aims to provoke thoughts about what the word “classical” means to the performers and their audience, exploring the roles of today’s American musicians in popular music. Through their performance, the Holy Cross choirs and orchestra will share this world of “classical” musical with the audience, and bring the history of the music to life.

For additional information please call the Holy Cross music department at (508) 793-3503.
