The Winter Choral Concert – a RIC holiday tradition – will be held Friday, Dec. 7 at 8 p.m. in the Nazarian Center’s Sapinsley Hall.
The performance will feature the three RIC choral ensembles – the RIC Chorus, Chamber Singers, and Women’s Chorus – in performances of works by important composers throughout western music history, holiday favorites, as well as non-traditional and lesser-known composers and pieces.
The featured work is “Gloria” from Puccini's Messa di Gloria. Other pieces include Victoria's “O magnum mysterium,” Hassler's “Cantate Domino canticum novum,” Daley's “What Sweeter Music,” Lauridsen's “O nata lux,” Torme's “The Christmas Song” and many others.
The RIC Chorus, Chamber Singers, and Women's Chorus are conducted by Teresa Coffman. Christina Breindel is pianist and assistant conductor of all ensembles.
General admission is $10; free for RIC students, faculty and staff.
