Hear Adelphian, Central High choirs in concert
The 47-voice Adelphian Concert Choir from University of Puget Sound in Tacoma, Wash., will join the Central High School school choir in presenting a free concert at 7:30 p.m. Sunday, March 17, at Central High School, 550 Warrior Way.
The Adelphian Concert Choir, comprising vocally talented Puget Sound students, many of whom anticipate careers in music, is touring in Idaho and Colorado, showcasing its diverse repertoire.
“Founded in 1932, the Adelphian Concert Choir has attracted accolades from audiences in Canada, Europe and on the West Coast,” a news release said.
The choir is conducted by Steven Zopfi, “one of the leading young conductors in the Pacific Northwest who joined University of Puget Sound in 2008 as director of choral activities and conductor of the Adelphians. He previously sang with the Prague Philharmonic and New Jersey Symphony, conducting world premieres of new music and serving with professional music associations,” the release said.
Sunday’s concert will feature music ranging from contemporary composer Eric Whitacre’s “Leonardo Dreams of His Flying Machine” to Charles Theodore Pachelbel’s early 18th century “Magnificat.”
