Singers of Madrigalia Take to the Podium
ROCHESTER, NY – The members of Madrigalia come from all professions. Whether they are doctors, lawyers, teachers, real estate agents, or marketing professionals, they are united by their common passion for singing.
For Madrigalia’s closing concert of the 2013-2014 season, the singers will focus that passion not only on singing, but also on planning and producing the entire program.
“Many choruses periodically plan concerts with repertoire chosen by their members,” said Dan McInerney, Business Administrator for the ensemble and long-time tenor. “But Madrigalia took that idea one step further and decided to also have members conduct the rehearsals and performances. With several music teachers and conductors in the group, it seemed like a natural progression of the idea.”
May’s concert program, entitled “Singer’s Choice,” is organized into four sections: “Songs of Singing,” “Songs of Wind, Earth, and Light,” “Songs of Heritage,” and “Songs of Spirit.” The light program predominately features music of American composers, including Eric Whitacre, Craig Hella Johnson, Frank Ticheli, Morten Lauridsen, and Z. Randall Stroope.
Initially a group that performed only Renaissance madrigals, Madrigalia concerts now draw from a much wider repertoire of music spanning several centuries. Programs often include premieres of new works and works of American composers.
The concerts will take place across the area: May 17 at the United Congregational Church of Christ in Fairport and then on May 18 at Baptist Temple in Rochester.
