The Women’s Chamber Choir and three other vocal ensembles of Hope College will perform on Monday, Nov. 25, at 7:30 p.m. at St. Francis De Sales Catholic Church.
The public is invited. Admission is free.
As during previous concerts, the Women’s Chamber Choir will be joined by Hope’s popular close-harmony groups, Luminescence and 12th Street Harmony. This year, the Collegium Musicum will also be singing, directed by Jim DeBoer.
The Women’s Chamber Choir will sing a variety of sacred and secular music, including Irish mouth music, the spiritual “Wade in the Water,” a hauntingly beautiful and harmonically dense “Kyrie eleison” followed by a gospel-style “Gloria,” and other music written specifically for the women’s choir. The choir will be joined by flute, oboe, drum, violin and accompanist Lannette Zylman-TenHave of the Hope staff. The choir will finish with the traditional closing song, “Blessing.”
