Chamber Choir Performs Sunday
The centerpiece of Sunday's program is Benjamin Britten's "Hymn to Saint Cecilia," Castleberry said. Britten was born on St. Cecilia's Day (Nov. 22) and Cecilia is the patron saint of music.
"This year the music world celebrates Benjamin Britten's 100th anniversary year," Castleberry said. "We are pleased to honor the composer's memory with a presentation of one of his finest works. This ten-minute piece was very special to Britten and is a jewel among his many fine creations."
The concert also features works by Hans Leo Hassler, Claudio Monteverdi, Felix Mendelssohn, Robert Schumann and Samuel Barber.
The Chamber Choir is a select, thirty-four-voice choir, drawn from students across the university. The choir has distinguished itself through performance tours and recordings, including a concert tour a year ago to France that included performance at Paris's famed Cathedral of Notre Dame.
Smith Recital Hall is located at the corner of Hal Greer Boulevard and Third Avenue.
