Chorus warm hearts with carols

On Sunday, Dec. 2, the Cabrini College Chorus entertained a crowd in Grace Hall.

Preparing since September, members of the chorus sang both classical pieces as well as classical carol music for the holiday.

As Dr. Adeline Bethany directed the chorus, the audience listened as each vocal section flowed together to create a soothing festive atmosphere.

From the audience sing-along of “Silent Night” to Mozart’s “Gloria in Excelsis,” the chorus performance delivered an outstanding version of the Christmas favorites we all know and love.

Along with an entire chorus show, the Chorale also performed fan favorites. The Chorale consists of select members from the Chorus. They were also invited to Vienna to perform at a festival next November.

Carefully selected pieces and dedicated members delivered an enjoyable evening of music and melody.

“I love to sing. I think the music Dr. Bethany chooses consists of many classical pieces that a singer should know. The music balances out to be both fun and challenging,” said Adriana DePalma, junior political science/history major-Italian minor. DePalma has been a member of the choir since freshman year.

Closing with the famous “Hallelujah Chorus” and a slight twist as an orchestra recording accompanied them, the choir delivered an outstanding and ovation-worthy performance.

As for those who would like to join, chorus can be taken as a course that counts for aesthetics or a voluntary extracurricular activity that is open to all.

The Christmas Concert was one enjoyed by all that certainly made everyone who attended feeling it’s the most wonderful time of the year.
