The Hofstra Chorale and Chamber Choir will perform their annual holiday concert on Friday, December 9, at 7:30 p.m. at the Cathedral of the Incarnation, 50 Cathedral Avenue in Garden City. David Fryling, Professor of Music and Director of Choral Studies, proudly notes that the Chamber Choir was recently named a semifinalist in the 2016 The American Prize in Choral Performance— college/university chorus division. “We’re in really great company on the semifinalist list. I’m super proud of what my students accomplish every year, and it’s great to have some outside confirmation of their hard work and passion.”
This end-of-semester concert is presented around the theme “Luminous,” exploring the qualities of light in poetry, color, texture, and harmony. Featured composers span the centuries from the Renaissance to present day. Organ accompaniment will be provided by Hofstra Adjunct Assistant Professor Matthew Koraus in three of the pieces.
Tickets to the concert at the Cathedral of the Incarnation are $10 general admission; $8 senior citizen (over 65) or matriculated non-Hofstra student with ID. Members of the Hofstra community (current faculty, staff and students) receive two free tickets upon presentation of a current HofstraCard. For tickets and information, please call 516-463-5490.
