The Hofstra Chorale and Chamber Choir will perform a wide gamut of choral traditions, from the Renaissance to the 21st century, for their annual holiday concert on Friday, November 17, at 7:30 p.m. at the Cathedral of the Incarnation in Garden City.
Directed by David Fryling, Professor of Music and Director of Choral Studies, the theme of the evening is “Miserere nobis,” texts inspired by the human tendency to need to ask for forgiveness. The concert features Allegri’s magnificent Miserere, and Tormis’ terrifying Raua Needmine (A Curse Upon Iron) with male soloists and shaman drum. Adjunct Professor of Music Matthew Koraus will make a guest appearance on the organ.
The Cathedral of the Incarnation is located at 50 Cathedral Avenue in Garden City. Tickets are $10 general admission; $8 senior citizen (over 65) or matriculated non-Hofstra student with ID. Members of the Hofstra community receive two free tickets upon presentation of a current HofstraCard. For tickets and information, please call 516-463-5497. Tickets will also be sold at the door.
