Rochester College Band And Chorus Perform First Concert Of The Season

Rochester College’s Music Department will present its first concert of the season, featuring the A Cappella Chorus and the Rochester College Concert Band on Tuesday, Oct. 19.
The chorus will present a program ranging from Mozart to modern, Russian to American. Featured music includes a Kyrie written by 16-year-old Mozart, an arrangement of the early American hymn tune “McKay,” a setting of “Our Father” by famed Russian composer Alexander Gretchaninoff, and an American spiritual. The 40-member group has a reputation for excellence that is unrivaled in the local area.

The band’s featured music will include “A Moorside Suite” by Gustav Holst, a delightful work with very lyrical sections, as well as “Intrada from Symphony No. 2” by Frank Erickson and selections from the movie “Robin Hood, Prince of Thieves.” The 70-member RC Concert Band includes RC undergraduates and faculty, students from other area colleges, advanced high school musicians, and adult community members.

The Tuesday performance will take place at 7:30 p.m. in the Rochester College Theatre on the campus of Rochester College at 800 W. Avon Road, Rochester Hills, MI, 48307. Tickets are complimentary, though small donations are accepted. For tickets or more information, call (248) 218-2149 or e-mail
