The Knox College choir and Nova Singers team up for their first joint concert.
Excerpt from the Register-Mail:
The Nova Singers concert this weekend is one of firsts.
It’s the first concert of the 20-member professional ensemble’s 22nd season.
It will be the first time the professional singing group has performed a full concert with another choir, in this case with the 62-member Knox College choir.
It also will be the first time Laura Lane, award-winning conductor of Nova Singers and the Knox College choir, has attempted to put on a program of complex, double-choir, eight-part musicâ€¦..
According to Lane, double-choir music is rarely composed and rarely performed, due to technical demands.
But she’s had her eye on some double-choir compositions for several years and decided her Knox choir was up for the challenge this year.
