On March 17, Eastern's Concert Chorale performed at Carnegie Hall. The chorale is composed of students, faculty and community members. This was the fifth time that the group has sung at Carnegie Hall.
David Belles, associate professor of music and conductor of the Concert Chorale and Chamber Singers, served as conductor for the concert. The chorale performed John Rutter's "Requiem" as part of a choral ensemble with choirs from Connecticut, Arizona, California and Kentucky. "It's not every day that we get the opportunity to sing in such a renowned place as Carnegie Hall," said Concert Chorale member and music major Renae St. John. "I was happy to perform Rutter's works, which I personally enjoy. They're composed in such a way that they are easily accessible to all kinds of choirs, regardless of skill level or membership."
