Women’s Chamber Choir to Perform on Monday, April 16

The Women’s Chamber Choir of Hope College will perform its spring concert, with Luminescence and 12th Street Harmony, on Monday, April 16, at 7:30 p.m. at St. Francis de Sales Catholic Church.

The public is invited.  Admission is free.

The choir will be joined by Hope’s close-harmony groups, Luminescence (women) and 12th Street Harmony (men), as well as by pianist Lannette Zylman-TenHave, violinist Erin Gilbert and cellist Laura Vanderveld.

The program will range from spirituals (“Children, Go Where I Send Thee” and “Little David, Play on Your Harp”), to springtime music (“Solar Flares,” sung in Romanian, and “The Smoothing Iron,” a love song about laundry), to Gwyneth Walker’s “I Will Be Earth” and the Italian melody “Torna a Surriento.”

The Women’s Chamber Choir, established in 2001, is an auditioned group of 20-25 Hope students.  The group is directed by Jennifer Wolfe, adjunct assistant professor of music.

St. Francis de Sales Catholic Church is located at 195 W. 13th St., on the corner of 13th Street and Maple Avenue.
