The new season will include three Chorale-presented concerts, five collaborative concerts and a summer tour to the Verbier Festival.
Of interest to theatre fans is an April 30, 2013, concert staging of Robert Wright and George Forrest's Song of Norway at Carnegie Hall. Directed by Ted Sperling, the 6:30 PM performance will feature the talents of Jason Danieley and Tony winner Judy Kaye as well as the American Symphony Orchestra and The Chorale.
"Romantic and with glorious music," Song of Norway, press notes state, tells the story of "composer Edvard Grieg as he dreams of fame, but after experiencing it under the patronage of a famous prima donna, realizes that his true creativity and love are at home in Norway."
The mission of The Collegiate Chorale, which was founded in 1941, is to "enrich its audiences through innovative programming and exceptional performances of a broad range of vocal music featuring a premier choral ensemble."
