The Hofstra University Chamber Choir from the Department of Music are taking their music on the road this spring break (March 22-25, 2018), presenting concerts across four states. This is the seventh year the Hofstra students and their director, Dr. David Fryling, have gone on a spring break concert tour.

The repertoire of the Hofstra University Chamber Choir spans centuries of unaccompanied music – from the Renaissance to the 21st century. This tour features works by composers like Jake Runestad, William Billings and Veljo Tormis – including Tormis’ “Raua Needmine” (A Curse Upon Iron), an intense, extended a cappella work with shaman drum, sung in Finnish and Estonian. The Chamber Choir will also perform with the local high school choirs in Somers, Waterbury and Medway.
