Feb. 25, 2014 / Sarasota, Fla. — The Yale Glee Club will present “Whim ‘n Rhythm” — a lively concert at the Church of the Redeemer on Sun., March 9, at 7:30 p.m. Hailed by The New York Times as “one of the best collegiate singing ensembles, and one of the most adventurous,” the 80-voice chorus of women and men will perform under the direction of conductor Jeffrey Douma.
The concert will feature works by Brahms, Victoria and Tavener, and new works by Timothy Laciano, Yale class of 2015. Other pieces to be performed include those of Winslow & Morrison, folk songs, spirituals and other classics from the Yale Glee Club repertoire.
One of the most traveled collegiate choruses in the world, the Yale Glee Club was founded in 1863. The Club has performed across the United States, and began touring internationally in 1928. During its 2012/13 season, the chorus traveled to mainland China and Hong Kong.
Suggested ticket donation is $10 at the door. The Church of the Redeemer is located at 222 S. Palm Ave., in downtown Sarasota. For more information, visit redeemersarasota.org or call 941-955-4263.
