During the past 12 years since its founding by Music Director Bruce Rogers, the 52-strong, mixed-voice Mt. Sac Chamber Singers has been extremely active, winning a variety of awards, accepting invitations to appear at numbers ACDA conventions, a special guest appearance at Carnegie Hall, and winning numerous first place honors throughout Europe at International choral competitions. "Horizons" features 16 songs, with some drum and piano accompaniment. Favorites are the powerful, rhythmic "Annua gaudia," Wm. Byrd's lovely a cappella "Laudibus in sanctis," Maurice Hauptmann's lively "Zigeunerlied," Peter Louis Van Dijk's dramatic, rhythmic, surprising title tune, Z. Randall Stroope's manic, driving "The Conversion of Saul," Jan Magne Forde's delicate "Bruremarsj," Brahms' soaring "Waldesnacht, du Wunderkuhle," and Jiri Laburda's ringing "Isli tri panenky." These are eclectic, often difficult tunes to perform, usually only selected if your ensemble has the vocal chops to actually handle them. The Mt. Sac Chamber Singers is one of those rare groups, which is why they are beloved by audiences and judges alike!
