The Linn-Benton Community College choirs will perform “A World in Harmony” Thursday, Nov. 29 at 7:30 p.m. in the LBCC Russell Tripp Performance Center, Takena Hall, 6500 Pacific Blvd. SW, Albany.

Conducted by LBCC director of choral activities, James Reddan, the performance includes the Concert Choir, Re-Choired Element Chamber Choir, Women’s Ensemble, and the a cappella groups Blue Light Special and The Sirens. Diana Hancock will accompany on piano. 

The concert also features more than 150 musicians in one of the largest collaborations between singers and instrumentalists at LBCC including brass orchestra, percussion, string quartet and piano.

“There is truly something for everybody,” said Reddan. “We certainly hope you will join us in welcoming the seasons and celebration!”

In addition, the LBCC choirs just released their second CD, Ear Candy, which will be available for purchase at the concert, and at the college Bookstore and Gracewinds Music in Corvallis.

The Chamber Choir performed as part of the pre-Olympic festivities in London this summer, including performances at Cadogan Hall, St. Pancras Cathedral, the Tower of London and St. Paul’s Cathedral.

The concert will feature many different choral works celebrating different choral traditions including: Porter’s Lux Aeterna; Mendelssohn’s Angels in Seven; Whitacre’s Sleep and Five Hebrew Love Songs; Meader’s We Three Kings; Ganz’s O Clap Your Hands; and Rutter’s Gloria.
