A 97-strong choir from Napa High School, California, USA, will be giving a free concert in St Anne’s Cathedral, Belfast, at 8pm on Saturday March 19.
The Napa High Choir will be joined by the Belfast-based St George’s Singers, a cross community choir directed by Marion Doherty.
Napa High Choirs have a reputation for excellence in local, area, state and international competitions, winning top awards for many years. This outstanding youth ensemble is directed by Travis Rogers and Karen May. The choir regularly embarks on international tours and has travelled to places including Italy, France, Spain, Costa Rica, Hawaii, Florida and New YorkCity. They perform as a large concert choir of 95 voices, but also split into smaller ensembles for several pieces and sing a selection of Irish folk songs and sacred pieces
The St George’s singers were founded in 1984, and while their main focus has been on baroque music, their repertoire ranges from early music by composers such as Monteverdi, Purcell and Byrd, through music of the classical and romantic eras to modern music by Britten and Bernstein.
Entry to the concert is free and all are very welcome to come and experience a night of superb music and singing.
