HAMMOND – Singers from the campus and community are invited to join Southeastern Louisiana University’s University Chorus and the Northshore Chorale, which will begin fall rehearsals on Tuesday, Aug. 26.
The choirs, which combine their voices in popular concerts each semester, will meet each Tuesday from 6:30-8:30 p.m. in the Music Annex choral room (room 165A), said Alissa Rowe, director of choral activity in Southeastern’s Department of Music and Dramatic Arts.
“You do not have to audition for the University Chorus and Northshore Chorale,” said Rowe. “Just come to the first rehearsal. Everyone who loves to sing is welcome.”
With more than 80 singers representing many university majors and community professions, the ensembles perform major works with professional orchestras and soloists. Repertoire includes Mozart's "Requiem" and "Mass in C minor," Bernstein's "Chichester Psalms," Samuel Barber's “Prayers of Kierkergaard,” Orff's "Carmina Burana," Schubert's "Mass in G," and Vaughan Williams' "Five Mystical Songs." The choirs presented Faure's “Requiem” last May.
