Schola has celebrated music featuring Local Composers in Residence (Elizabeth J. Atkinson, Stephen Coxe, John S. Dixon, Aldophous S. Hailstork, Matthew Perez and Michael John Trotta) and The American Standard (Romancing the Song, songs by Gershwin, Porter and from familiar Broadway musicals). Perhaps one of the most moving vocal performances was a celebration of the Sesquicentennial (1861-2011) of the Civil War (Union and Liberty).
And, they have participated in celebrating premiers often singing with various Choirs: Dr. Richard Moriarty’s Ad Sum, Dr. Aldophous Hailstork’s, When Lilacs Last in the Dooryard Bloomed, and Walter T. Marshall, III, premier performance of a new a cappella work, Requiem in F Minor.
Whether in celebration of cultures, premier works, history, art, or food, the talented voices of Schola Cantorum celebrate life.
