Spring Choral Concert, featuring performances by the Carthage Choir, the Carthage Treble Choir, and the Carthage Chorale.
The Spring Choral concert is the last concert for senior members of all three choirs, and as such, they will be honored and celebrated for their contributions over their years at Carthage. It is sure to be the perfect way to finish out a year of successful performances for the three ensembles.
Originally an a cappella choir that performed sacred music, the Carthage Choir now performs repertoire in secular and sacred traditions in a variety of choral styles. Now in its 93rd year, the choir has toured both nationally and internationally, and returned from participating in the 56th Annual International Competition of Choral Singing in Spittal, Austria. The Carthage Choir is under the direction of Professor Eduardo Garcia-Novelli.
The Carthage Treble Choir, formerly the Carthage Women’s Ensemble, has developed a strong reputation throughout the region as a model for choral excellence and typically focuses its performances on pieces by women composers and writers. This choir has premiered several new works for treble choir, including Ola Gjeilo’s “I Rise!” and Joan Szymko’s “Nothing Short of Grace.” The Treble Choir is usually directed by Professor Peter Dennee but is currently under the direction of Prof. Garcia-Novelli while Prof. Dennee takes a sabbatical to teach and research music in Tanzania.
The Carthage Chorale is a mixed ensemble that welcomes singers of a wide range of ability and experience. The chorale periodically provides music for Chapel services and other College-wide events and is also active as a concert ensemble. The Carthage Chorale traditionally participates in the Christmas Festival, the Annual Weston Noble Concert, Family Weekend Worship Service, and other events. This choir is also typically directed by Prof. Dennee, but this year the choir brings back former director Professor Dimitri Shapovalov.
The concert is open to Carthage students, faculty, and staff only. Tickets are required and must be obtained in advance. External patrons are welcome to join us from home through our livestream.
