Oct 14, 2013

The Newman University Chorale and Troubadours will present their first vocal music concert of the year on Sunday, Oct. 27, at 3 p.m. in historic St. John’s Chapel inside Sacred Heart Hall on the campus of Newman University.

A total of 83 students, members of the Chorale and Troubadours, will present a show entitled “Choral Grandeur.”

“Last year, we did a concert featuring some of the greatest choral choruses from the classical, operatic and Broadway realms, and it was such a success I decided to do the same theme with different great choruses,” said Newman Director of Music Deanne Zogleman.

“This music is very difficult, but we seem to be mastering it quite well,” Troubadour member Haley Hungate said. “I am super excited about this concert. It will blow some people away.”

“The caliber of singers I have enabled me to choose more difficult music, which I think the audience will be very impressed and entertained,” Zogleman said.

Admission is $5 at the door. Newman University students are admitted free with a college ID. Doors will open at 2:30 p.m.

“The fact that we are presenting this beautiful religious music in the Chapel just makes it special – We are singing to God in God’s house,” Zogleman said.
