Canisius College Chorale here!

To Perform At St. Benedict Church
The Canisius College Chorale, under the direction of Frank Scinta, will continue its 2011-2012 Sacred Spaces Concert Series with a performance on Monday, April 16th at 7:30 pm here at St. Benedict’s on Main Street and Eggert Road in Amherst, NY. Directions at under "about us."

Please plan to continue to celebrate with us the joy of the Easter season in song . The program is free and open to the public. It will feature works of Mendelssohn, Lotti, Lauridsen, Bernstein, Dawson and others.

Some featured selections this year have been "Bring Him Home," "Down to the River to Pray," "You Raise Me Up," and Franz Biebl's "Ave Maria," a setting of the Angelus. Now in its 14th season, the Canisius College Chorale remains one of WNY's most active collegiate music ensembles.

Composed of 120 undergraduate and graduate members (including our own Michael Rodman), the Chorale regularly presents programs to school, church and community audiences throughout Western New York and southern Ontario. Its annual Winter and Spring Concerts continue to attract capacity audiences to the Montante Cultural Center at Canisius College. Its repertoire covers more than five centuries of composition and nearly every interpretive style of choral music. The Chorale has recorded four CDs.
