EMORY UNIVERSITY CONCERT CHOIR (USA)
DIRECCIÓN CORAL - Eric Nelson
On Thursday 11th May the Emory University Concert Choir will sing mass at the Basílica Nuestra Señora de las Angustias after which they will perform a concert for all. The concert will include motets from Spain, Portugal and the USA as well as some American Spirituals.
The Emory choirs (University Chorus & Concert Choir) represent long-standing traditions in the Emory community, with performances including the annual Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols, solo concerts including a variety of choral repertoire, masterworks with the symphony orchestra, and joint concerts with Emory's a cappella groups. The ensembles offer students the opportunity to grow as musicians, perform at the highest calibre, and to form close-knit bonds with others in the Emory community. The Emory Concert Choir will be touring Spain in May 2017.
The Emory Concert Choir is a select forty-voice chamber choir. The ensemble has sung at both the Southern and National Conventions of the American Choral Directors Association. The Emory Concert Choir has performed at Avery Fisher Hall in New York City, St. Paul’s Cathedral in London, the Berlinerdom in Berlin, the Vatican in Rome, and St. Nicholas Church in Prague, and will go on their next European tour in the summer of 2017. The choir sings a wide variety of sacred and secular repertoire from the Middle Ages to the present, from chant to folk song. Recent performances have included the Vivaldi Gloria, the Bach Magnificat, Dove’s Seek Him Who Maketh the Seven Stars, and Whitacre’s Cloudburst.
