Susquehanna Chorale Spring Concert

More About Susquehanna Chorale Spring Concert

The nationally-acclaimed Susquehanna Chorale will present its spring concert series, “Singing the Dance of Life,” sponsored by University Music Service in Hershey, on May 10 and 11.

The Chorale, founded in 1981 by Artistic Director and Conductor Linda L. Tedford, is a nationally recognized adult chamber ensemble of 36 auditioned singers.

Guest artist Dr. Todd Goranson will accompany the Chorale on saxophone. In addition, Dr. Goranson will perform a pre-concert recital 15 minutes before each performance.

From Gregorian chant to the stately rhythms of the Renaissance and Baroque eras, from the music of today’s finest composers to classics from the American Songbook, this concert explores a variety of repertoire that celebrates the dance of life.

Bach’s motet Lobet den Herrn dances with joy in praise to God, contrasting with the peaceful reflections of evening in Abendlied by Josef Rheinberger.

Quiet moments are captured in Ola Gjeilo’s Evening Prayer and Howard Helvey’s arrangement of Steal Away, both accompanied by saxophone, as well as in Eric Whitacre’s beloved Seal Lullaby.

No Mirrors in My Nana’s House and Let the Life I’ve Lived Speak for Me portray cherished pictures from the past, those transcendent times in our lives that are remembered forever.

The concert concludes with popular standards from the American Songbook, including Give My Regards to Broadway, The Way You Look Tonight, and It Don’t Mean a Thing (If It Ain’t Got That Swing).

Audience members are invited to attend receptions immediately following both performances, with an opportunity to meet Conductor Tedford and the Chorale singers.

Special thanks to Season Sponsor Clermont Wealth Strategies, and Media Sponsor PennLive.com/The Patriot-News.

The Chorale is ensemble-in-residence at Messiah College and is funded, in part, by the Cultural Enrichment Fund, the capital region’s united arts fund, and the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts.
