The Elmhurst College Concert Choir, Chamber Singers and Women’s Chorus will perform their Spring Choral Concert on Sunday, April 9.

The Elmhurst College Concert Choir, which sings traditional and contemporary choral music, recently sang with world-renowned tenor Andrea Bocelli as part of his World Tour. An auditioned group of students from a variety of majors, the Concert Choir also has been seen for the past two years in the Emmy-nominated PBS television special, A Christmas Carol, The Concert; has performed at Carnegie Hall; and traveled recently to Prague to perform with the Czech National Symphony in the world-famous Rudolfinum.

The Concert Choir is directed by Susan Moninger, who also directs the Elmhurst College Chamber Singers, an auditioned select ensemble that performs madrigal and other forms of challenging Renaissance and Classical literature. This group often shares the holiday spirit by singing for corporate and private events, and has appeared on NBC-TV Ch. 5.

The Women’s Chorus, directed by Donna Peterson Tallman, is an auditioned select group of women from a variety of majors who sing various styles of literature, including Renaissance, classical and 20th century.

The Spring Choral Concert will begin at 2:00 p.m. on Sunday, April 9, in Hammerschmidt Memorial Chapel. The concert is free and open to the public. All seats are general seating and the venue is accessible to the disabled.
