Guided by Professor Virginia Bray, an instructor of piano and music, members of the NCF chorus meet on Tuesday evenings and Sunday afternoons throughout the semester in preparation for a winter concert. The choir will perform several pieces of music in College Hall on Tuesday, Dec. 8. Among these works are Ola Gjeilo’s “Ubi Caritas,” Eric Whitacre’s “Lux Aurumque” and Moses Hogan’s “Abide With Me.”
“I have participated in New College choir for four semesters thus far, and I’m always very excited for our concerts,” thesis student Erika Folk wrote in an email. “We’ve worked especially hard this semester on our songs, and I would encourage anyone who enjoys choral music to come out and listen to us perform. The flowing and complex melodies of this year’s pieces are definitely something you’ll want to experience for yourself.”
The concert will begin at 5:30 p.m. and end approximately one hour thereafter. Students, staff, faculty and friends are all encouraged to attend.
