Marshall Chamber Choir to give concert in Hurricane April 20
Saturday, April 13, 2013 - 01:25 Updated 1 year ago Special to HNN Provided by Marshall University
David Donathan, director of music at Christ Church United Methodist in Charleston, will accompany the choir and present the second half of the program on the church's Harrah organ.
"The opportunity to perform this wonderful 20th-century masterpiece, supported by such an amazing instrument, makes this concert a special occasion for us," Castleberry said. "This truly will be a concert not to be missed."
The MU Chamber Choir, a select 35-voice ensemble, has been featured in performances for American Choral Directors Association, the Music Educators National Conference, the American Guild of Organists, and in a PBS-WYBY award-winning video, Choral Fusion. A year ago, the choir presented a 10-day performance tour in France that included Sunday high mass at Paris's historic Cathedral of Notre Dame, along with concerts through central and southern France.
"After our tour last year, I was afraid this year might be a bit of a letdown. But the chance to perform Mozart's Requiem with the West Virginia Symphony in January and the Duruflé in April have made this an equally memorable year," Castleberry said. "We are thrilled to share this concert with David Donathan, our hosts at Forrest Burdette Church and the community." Admission is $10 for adults, $5 for students, and free for children under 5.
