Posted: August 6, 2012
Location: Pennsylvania, USA
Choir type: Community Choirs
Central Pennsylvania’s critically acclaimed Susquehanna Chorale, directed by award-winning conductor Linda L. Tedford, the ensemble’s founder and artistic director, will present “A Celebration of Song,” free to the public, on Sunday, August 19, 7 p.m., at the Mt. Gretna Tabernacle, located at Third Street and Glossbrenner Avenue, Mt. Gretna, Pa.
Designed as a celebration of the choral art and the Chorale’s three-decades of performances, the concert will offer old and new choral classics, from the sublime to the rollicking, including John Rutter’s “Wells Jubilate,” Benjamin Britten’s “Festival Te Deum,” spirituals and folk songs, and Christopher Tin’s “Baba Yetu,” a setting of Psalm 23 to music from a video game.
The concert will also feature a selection by pianist and Chorale accompanist Lou Ann Potter, an adjunct professor of piano at Bucknell University and the director of music and organist at Christ Presbyterian Church in Camp Hill. Potter in 2003 recorded the four-hand piano accompaniment with Jake Heggie for his newest opera, “The End of the Affair.”For additional information, visit www.susquehannachorale.org, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call the Chorale office at 717-533-7859.
