Elon Choral Activities Releases New CD
The live recording features the Elon University Camerata and Chorale with the auditioned choral ensembles from Williams High and Cedar Ridge High School.
Elon Director of Choral Activities and Associate Professor of Music Stephen A. Futrell says, "we were very excited to invite two outstanding, area high school choral programs to join us for the concert last spring. Both Laura Sam, from Williams High School and Chris Hansen, from Cedar Ridge High School, earned Teacher of the Year during their tenure at their repsoective posts. Their students brought an intense level of excitement to the performance."
The combined choirs were accompanied by an ensemble of strings and featured Adam Lefever Hughes on piano. The live recording was mastered by Elon Music Production & Recording Arts alum Jacob Danieley. Also available from Elon Choral Activities: the combined choirs CD of the Mozart Requiem; the combined choirs DVD of Orff's Carmina burana; live recording of Camerata's annual Celebration of Light concert; and the élan éclectique CD.
