This is the first College Choir Tour since the pandemic began. Our concert will include a cappella sacred and secular music by composers from the 20th-21st centuries, including Colin Britt, Antonio Estévez, Gerald Finzi, Cristian Grases, Robert Harris, Don MacDonald, Darmon Meader, Andrea Ramsey, Hasan Uçarsu, and more. The Camerata, an eight-member chamber group from within the College Choir, will perform a group of lighter pieces. We hope to convey a sense of optimism and joy as we emerge from the pandemic.
