Women's Choir to Perform Nov. 10

The Hope College Women's Chamber Choir will be performing on Monday, Nov. 10, at 8 p.m. at St. Francis de Sales Catholic Church.

The public is invited. Admission is free.

The program will begin with a rendition of Psalm 150, followed by a setting of Emily Dickinson's famous poem "Ashore at Last!" with cello accompaniment.Another poem turned to song is William Blake's "Night," performed with flute accompaniment.

A Serbian Gypsy dance, accompanied with piano four-hand, will be another lively piece in the program. In addition, the traditional nonsense song called "Gletter" (Icelandic for "teasing happiness") will be performed.

The program also includes music by Louise Reichardt, the "Kyrie" from a modern Mass setting by Crystal LaPoint, and the chamber choir's now-traditional closing, titled "Blessing."

The chamber choir will be joined at times by another student a cappella ensemble, the men's Twelfth Street Harmony.

St. Francis de Sales Catholic Church is located in Holland at the corner of 13th Street and Maple Avenue.
