More About Susquehanna Chorale to Perform at Mt. Gretna

The critically acclaimed Susquehanna Chorale will perform “Music for a Summer’s Evening” at Mt. Gretna’s open-air Tabernacle on Sunday, Aug. 18, at 7:00 p.m. Artistic Director Linda L. Tedford, will conduct the Chorale in its appearance as part of Mt. Gretna’s Summer at the Tabernacle concert series.

The Chorale is a nationally recognized adult chamber ensemble of 36 auditioned singers. Since its founding in 1981 by Ms. Tedford, the group’s audience members have consistently cited the Chorale’s “ethereal blend,” “unparalleled tone,” and emotional connection to the music.

Conductor Tedford describes this year’s performance as, “A concert of timeless music that will stir your heart, make you smile, and maybe even inspire you to get up and dance!”

Guest artist Dr. Todd Goranson will be featured on saxophone for select pieces. In addition, Dr. Goranson will perform a pre-concert recital 15 minutes before the 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.

Byron J. Smith’s Worthy to be Praised 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).

Admission is without charge; a free-will offering to support the Tabernacle’s summer series will be collected. The Tabernacle is located at Third Street and Glossbrenner Avenue, Mt. Gretna (the Campmeeting side of Mt. Gretna).
