Legacy is often defined as a gift, and this year’s spring concert is our gift to you, our treasured audience members. Join us for a celebration filled with songs that have delighted listeners for four decades. As always, you can expect a fine balance between sacred and secular music, songs that reflect heartfelt faith as well as the experiences and emotions common to us all. You will hear signature Chorale favorites like Schubert’s Holy, Holy, Holy and Bruckner’s Locus Iste, Philip Stopford’s poignant Do Not Be Afraid, two classic early American folk hymns, Down to the River to Pray and No Time, and Java Jive, made famous by Manhattan Transfer. We end with Rollo Dilworth’s Shine the Heavenly Light and a special performance of Shenandoah with Chorale alumni.
For 40 years, Linda Tedford and the voices of the Susquehanna Chorale have brought the highest level of choral artistry to central Pennsylvania and beyond. As the Chorale proudly marks this milestone anniversary, we do so with a new-found appreciation for being together again both as a choir and in community with our listeners. You are part of our legacy, and we’re thrilled to be singing for you once more with spring concerts that promise to be truly memorable events. Come celebrate with us!
- Linda L. Tedford; Artistic Director, Founder, and Conductor
