Concert Choir & Chamber Choir
The Williams College Department of Music presents the Williams Concert Choir and Williams Chamber Choir on Friday, May 4 at 8 p.m. in Chapin Hall on the Williams campus. This free event is open to the public.
The Spirit of the North is a choral telling of legends, nature, and faith from the Baltics. In this concert the Williams Concert Choir presents captivating settings of the Kelevala, the great Finnish epic on the origins of the world. In addition there are works by leading composers from Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania. Brad Wells is the director of choirs at Williams. Ellery Galvin ’18 and Erin Kennedy ’19, student conductors, also lead the group for some of the selections.
The Williams Concert Choir and the Williams Chamber Choir continue a proud choral tradition with performances including masterworks and world premieres. These two ensembles explore music from the medieval to the modern eras and from throughout the world. Recent tours have taken the singers to Italy, Argentina, and South Africa.
