The Fall Concert will feature works by Arcadelt, Brahms, Butler, Rutter, Stroope and others and will be featured. Although it is not on the set list, one has to wonder if this group skilled at performing diverse genres could break into Van Morrison's autumnal classic Moondance. The choir's ensembles are directed by Terri E. Foster and Dr. Louie L. Bailey and accompanied by Thomas Seacat and Rhonda Hibdon.
The group, which is comprised of over 100 singers from over 60 schools in the Louisville area, recently performed at the opening of the KFC Yum! Center. Previously, they have performed with the Louisville Orchestra, the Louisville Bach Society, and the Louisville ballet. They've toured Europe, Canada, and the U.S., playing twice in venerable Carnegie Hall (2003 and 2009).
