AMERICAN BOYCHOIR PERFORMS AT TRINITY
What sounded like a choir of angels was actually The American Boychoir performing Thursday, October 26, in the Ozinga Chapel Auditorium. More than 500 people turned out to hear the nationally acclaimed choir based in Princeton, New Jersey.
The group recently sang before President and Mrs. Bush at the 9/11 Prayer Service held in St. Paul’s Chapel in New York City. They have also performed with world-class artists and ensembles including the Boston Symphony Orchestra, New York Philharmonic Orchestra, and a performance with Beyoncé at the 77th Annual Academy Awards.
The young singers opened the concert at Trinity with traditional choral favorites including Antonio Vivaldi’s Gloria and Gabriel Faure’s Ave Verum. After intermission the boychoir sung familiar American tunes including Samuel Ward’s America the Beautiful and an arrangement of Daniel Kallman titled My God is a Rock.
Henry and Carol Kamp ’01 of Palos Heights, Illinois were major sponsors of the event.
“This kind of program re-emphasizes the core values at the heart of what for many still epitomizes the American ideal,” said Carol Kamp. “To hear such lovely renditions brings a realization that rare artistic endeavor and interpretation is at work to edify both listeners and singers simultaneously.”
