Alderson-Broaddus is pleased to announce the Taylor University Chorale, under the direction of Dr. JoAnn Rediger, will be performing on campus in Wilcox Chapel on Tuesday at 7:30 pm.
With fewer than half of the singers majoring in music, membership in this 60-member vocal ensemble is open to all Taylor students on an audition basis. Repertoire consists of music selected from the spectrum of sacred choral works, from Renaissance to Contemporary periods, including great works such as Mozart's Coronation Mass, Chichester Psalms by Bernstein, Faure's Requiem, Messiah by Handel, Beethoven's Choral Fantasia and Symphony No. 9, Gloria by Poulenc, Brahms' A German Requiem, and Stravinsky's Symphony of Psalms. Expressing Taylor's long religious heritage, the Chorale also enjoys singing a variety of sacred choral compositions, hymns, and spirituals.
The Chorale performs on campus, tours regularly throughout the United States, and appears in concerts with the Fort Wayne and Marion Philharmonic Orchestras. International tours have included Bahamas, Great Britain, Austria, Italy, Germany, Scandinavia, Russia, Greece, and South Korea.
