Mar 27, 2017

Select songs from the March 2016 Anniversary Concerts


It was August 2, 1975, and 14 singers sat down in a living room to sing madrigals. Forty years, countless concerts, and over 850 pieces of music later, Madrigalia is a cornerstone of Rochester choral music.

Madrigalia celebrated its 40th anniversary with a choral retrospective of their favorite pieces over their history. The concert, which was presented March 12 and 13 at the Clover Center for Arts and Spirituality, 1101 Cover Street in Rochester presented the "best of" Madrigalia, as they were joined by a group of alumni for portions of the concert.

Selections included:
Frank Ticheli: There Will Be Rest
Morten Lauridsen: Sure on this Shining Night
Greg Jasperse: Voice Dance I
