Annual Spring Concert
May 15, 2016 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Chiaroscuro: A Community Men’s Chorus, Susan Matych-Hager, director, and Alan Ballenberger and Laurie Cunningham, accompanists, will present a Spring Choral Concert: Forever Let My Spirit Sing in Holy Rosary Chapel, located on the grounds of the Adrian Dominican Motherhouse at 1257 E. Siena Heights Drive, Adrian, on Sunday afternoon, May 15 at 3:00 p.m. A freewill offering will be accepted. A reception will immediately follow the concert to celebrate Chiaroscuro’s recent designation as a 501(c)(3) organization.
The concert will include works composed and arranged for four-part men’s choirs including music selections representative of art music, sacred music, spirituals, contemporary and patriotic music. Several pieces will be performed that were also performed at Chiaroscuro’s recent performance at the Intercollegiate Men’s Chorus Seminar at the University of Illinois as well as selections that will be performed at The Big Sing at Bethel College in Mishawaka, Indiana in June.
The goal of the ensemble is to sing meaningful choral music with beautiful chiaroscuro tone quality that engages the minds and touches the hearts of the listeners. The men in the ensemble include both amateur and professional musicians. They come from a diversity of professions and represent a wide range of ages. Chiaroscuro rehearses in Adrian and was founded in February, 2013. The all-male chorus rehearses once a week on Tuesdays from 6:30 p.m.-8:30 p.m. in the Verheyden Performing Arts Center, Room 115, at Siena Heights University in Adrian. Singers who are interested in auditioning for membership for the summer season should visit www.facebook.com/ChiaroscuroEnsemble for further information.
