Contact: Christina Chapple
HAMMOND – Singers from the campus and community are invited to join Southeastern Louisiana University’s Northshore Chorale, which will begin spring rehearsals on Tuesday, Jan. 20.
The choir 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.
“For our spring concert we will perform Joseph Haydn’s ‘Missa Sancti Nicolai’ with orchestra -- and much more,” Rowe said. “You do not have to audition for the Northshore Chorale. Just come to the first rehearsal. Everyone who loves to sing is welcome.”
Tuition is $25 per participant, $40 for couples, and $20 for senior citizens and students.
With singers representing many university majors and community professions, the Northshore Chorale performs 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 choir presented Faure's “Requiem” last May.
