Willimantic, Conn. - Eastern Connecticut State University's Chamber Singers will perform on March 24 at 7 p.m. at Christ Church on Capitol Square in Raleigh, NC. The performance is part of the University's premiere vocal ensemble annual Spring Tour. A varied program of a cappella choral music will be presented. Admission is free although donations will be accepted.
The Chamber Singers is composed of 20-25 auditioned singers from various departments throughout the University. Repertoire performed by the Eastern Chamber Singers encompasses chamber music from more than four centuries.
The annual Spring Tour allows the Eastern Chamber Singers to share their music beyond the boundaries of the University; enrich the musical lives of audiences both near and far; and enhance the cultural experience for members of the ensemble.
In addition to local appearances throughout Connecticut--including performing with Connecticut's professional choir CONCORA -- members of Eastern's Chamber Singers have visited recent tour destinations such as Montreal, Washington, DC., and Carnegie Hall in New York City, as well as the upcoming performance in Raleigh.
Donations at the door will be used to help fund the Chamber Singers' upcoming performance at Carneige Hall in 2014.
