All selections will feature standout improvisations. The students will perform in small groups as well as in the full band.

The college Chorus will perform on Tuesday, May 13 at 7:30 p.m. Directed by Marjorie Herman, the program will feature a performance of the Requiem by Gabriel Faure. Soloists include Alyssa Manzella, David Walter, and Jamel Taylor. Also on the program will be madrigals and folk songs celebrating spring.
