Women's Chorus to Give First Concert of Season

Posted November 8, 2001

HOLLAND -- The Hope College Women's Chorus will present its first concert of the 2001-02 season in Dimnent Memorial Chapel on Monday, Nov. 19, at 8 p.m.

The public is invited. Admission is free. A new choir to Hope, the Women's Chorus was founded in the spring of 2001 by Brad Richmond, associate professor of music and director of choral activities at Hope. The 24-voice group is now under the direction of Jennifer Wolfe.

The concert features both secular and sacred works. "The pieces chosen for the concert share the themes of the church, the world, and the joy of music," Wolfe said.

One piece is sung simultaneously in English, Hebrew and Arabic, and speaks of coming together to sing and dance as friends. Another, written to commemorate the death of a boy soprano, blends boyhood recollections of an old man with snatches of the Pie Jesu from Faure's "Requiem," which had been the boy's particular solo.

The choir will be joined during the concert by guest performers "12th Street Harmony."

Dimnent Memorial Chapel is located on College Avenue at 12th Street.
