The Houghton College Choir will perform a concert at Tenth on Wednesday, March 5 as part of our 2013-2014 Tenth Concert Series and their annual tour. Widely acclaimed for its artistry and sensitivity, the Houghton College Choir upholds an 80 year tradition of sacred a cappella choral music, while flexibly embracing a diversity of choral styles. Whether performing a Renaissance mass setting, a Baroque motet, or an African American spiritual, the choir delights in well-crafted sacred choral music. Led by ascending conductor, Dr. Brandon Johnson, the College Choir has performed in renowned concert halls and churches across the United States and Europe. They will make their Carnegie Hall debut on Sunday, March 9.
As an alumnus of Houghton College and a 6 year member of this ensemble, I am very excited to finally bring them to Tenth. Some of my fondest memories of my educational journey come from choir tour. They will offer a wide variety of choral standards from Bach to Mozart, Rachmaninoff to spirituals. This is sure to be a concert you will not want to miss. It's also a wonderful opportunity for you to introduce friends and neighbors to the church and to music sung for the glory of God alone.
Like all our concerts, this one is free and open to the public and we will be collecting a free-will offering during the intermission. A preview of the program Houghton will be performing for us is available.
