Regis College Glee Club will host the twentieth annual College Choral Festival, sponsored by the Massachusetts Chapter of the American Choral Directors Association.
The concert begins at 7:30pm on Saturday, Feb. 9 at the Casey Theatre of Regis College, 235 Wellesley Street.
According to a press release, various choirs will give brief individual performances presenting a variety of music, from classics to folk songs, show tunes, variety tunes, and a cappella renditions for the first half of the program. After intermission, the Smith College Orchestra will play movements from Carmen Suite by Bizet. The concert concludes with the combined choirs with nearly 200 singers and the orchestra performing three movements from the great Bach Magnificat.
