A Cappella Choir, Chorale to Perform in Carnegie Hall May 28
Samford's A Cappella Choir and University Chorale will begin their Spring Tour May 24 and end with a performance at Carnegie Hall in New York City May 28.
The group will take part in a service project with Graffiti Church on May 25 before taking the big stage, where they'll be included among 195 choristers. A Cappella Choir director Philip Copeland will conduct the larger choir and New England Symphonic Ensemble for a performance of Maurice Duruflé's "Requiem".
The performance will mark Copeland's second time on the stage at Carnegie Hall under the auspices of MidAmerica Productions. The first was with a similar Birmingham-area combined choir. This time, in addition to Samford's A Cappella Choir, the choirs will include Alabama Symphony Orchestra Chorus, Mountain Brook Jr. League Choral Group, Whippany Park High School, (New Jersey), White Plains High School (New York) and Christopher Dock Mennonite High School (Pennsylvania). Samford alumnus Dale Whitmire Reynolds will be performing her last concert with the Alabama Symphony Chorus for the event.
