Continuing the tradition, Rensselaer is pleased to invite community participation from across the Capital District for its annual Holiday Festival Choir. This SATB volunteer choral group will present a concert at the Experimental Media & Performing Arts Center (EMPAC) on the RPI campus in partnership with the Rensselaer Orchestra and Concert Choir under the direction of Nicholas DeMaison on Sunday, December 15th at 3:00 PM.
No audition is required, however, participants should be aware that rehearsals will be fast paced and musically intensive. All participants in the Festival Choir should be comfortable reading choral scores, have some familiarity with sung diction in Latin, and are strongly encouraged to have prior choral singing experience. Participants are expected to attend all scheduled rehearsals.
Monteverdi – Ecco mormorar l’onde
F.J. Haydn – Te Deum in C for Maria Theresia
Handel – Hallelujah Chorus from The Messiah
Scores will be provided for all participants.
