PITT-BRADFORD COLLEGE-COMMUNITY CHOIR TO PERFORM DEC. 2

Winter Concert Dec. 2nd
BRADFORD, Pa. – The University of Pittsburgh at Bradford’s College-Community Choir will sing selections from short Masses and English and seasonal carols at its annual Winter Concert on Dec. 2.

Led by Dr. John Levey, assistant professor of music at Pitt-Bradford, the concert will begin at 7:30 p.m. in the Bromeley Family Theater of Blaisdell Hall. A part of the university’s Spectrum Series, the event is free and open to the public.

The choir will sing excerpts from missae brevis (short masses) by Giovanni Palestrina, Gabriel Fauré and William Walton, as well as English carols by Benjamin Britten, Ralph Vaughan Williams and John Rutter. The choir will also lead the audience in a carol sing-along, featuring traditional seasonal carols.

Soloists include Amelia Dibble, an elementary education major from Smethport, and Jonathan McCracken, a psychology major from Bradford, who will sing a work by Walton.

“I tried to strike a balance between several disparate musical styles,” Levey said. “Palestrina, Fauré and Walton lived in very different times and wrote very different music, but there are similarities in the way they handle the texts of the Mass. Britten and Vaughan Williams, on the other hand, emerge from the English choral tradition, and one hears intersections between their work and that of a more recent composer like Rutter.”

The College-Community Choir is made up of about 45 students, faculty, staff and community members and has rehearsed weekly since the start of the fall term. The ensemble is open to singers of any ability; those interested in joining should call (814) 362-0257.
