Members of Glenville State College’s Chamber Singers group have been invited to perform a choral concert at St. Patrick’s Cathedral in New York City, New York. Their performance is scheduled to take place on June 1.
The performance was arranged after Assistant Professor of Music and Choir Director Teresa Dody submitted an application for the group to perform at the historic cathedral. This included sending a photo of the group along with a recording and information about the ensemble. The recordings are then screened to choose the groups to be invited. St. Patrick’s has a history of fine musical performances and GSC’s Chamber Singers will be appearing as part of their Guest Choir Concert Series. The GSC Choir is also featured on St. Patrick’s Cathedral’s website.
“Our students are looking forward to the honor of performing such a concert series in one of our country’s most beautiful cathedrals,” said Dody. “Some are hoping to see a Broadway show, visit the National 9/11 Memorial, Statue of Liberty, and experience a vibrant, adventure-filled city! I formerly lived in NYC and have performed there as a soloist many times, so for me, it is exciting to show them my old home.”
The Chamber Singers are currently fundraising to help to cover the costs associated with the trip. Anyone interested in helping with the fundraiser can contact Dody by e-mail at Teresa.firstname.lastname@example.org, by calling her office at (304) 462-6345, or the Fine Arts Department at (304) 462-6340.
