WENHAM, MA - The Gordon College Choir, Symphonic Chorale, Women's Choir and the Children's Choir will perform a festival of choral music on Saturday, March 25, at 7 p.m. in the A.J. Gordon Memorial Chapel.

The program will feature choral works from the 17th, 18th, 19th, and 20th centuries, including works by Mozart, Haydn, Randall Thompson, Aaron Copland, and John Rutter. Also included on the program will be spirituals and folk songs from around the world, including traditional music from the Caribbean, Africa, and Americas.

The Gordon College Choir is the College's premier touring choral group, the flagship of Gordon's musical ensembles, and one of the premier choral groups on the East Coast. The 60-voice choir regularly tours through New England and the eastern seaboard performing a variety of standard choral literature and major choral orchestral literature.

The Gordon Symphonic Chorale is Gordon's largest choral ensemble, comprised of current undergraduate and graduate students, faculty, staff, alumni and other friends of the college and is led by conductor C. Thomas Brooks.
