Hope College’s Chapel Choir coming home

Anonymous • Jul 21, 2015 at 11:26 AM

It will take place at St. Francis de Sales Catholic Church, 195 W. 13th St. in Holland. The public is invited and admission is free.

The concert will feature a set of African-American spirituals; as well as pieces by composers such as Rene Clausen, Anthony Piccolo, James MacMillan and R. Murray Schafer. There will be a number of folksong arrangements and a couple of grand anthems with organ.

The choir will be returning from its March 14-22 tour of Indiana, Florida and Kentucky.

The Chapel Choir is Hope College’s premier choral ensemble. Comprised of auditioned singers, the choir has toured extensively throughout the United States and Canada, and has traveled abroad on eight occasions, most recently to South Africa in May 2009. The choir is featured along with other music ensembles in Christmas Vespers, a tradition that stretches back to 1941.

The choir is directed by Brad Richmond, professor of music and director of choral activities at Hope.
