Potsdam Community Chorus Performs Concert 'In Remembrance'


The Potsdam Community Chorus will present its fall concert at SUNY Potsdam's Crane School of Music on Sunday, Nov. 24 at 3 p.m. in the Helen M. Hosmer Concert Hall.

Titled "In Remembrance," the concert will open with "My Spirit Sang All Day" by Gerald Finzi, followed by the 1997 five-movement work "Lux Aeterna" by Morten Lauridsen. "Lux Aeterna" is a poignant, modern requiem written in memory of the composer's mother.

Following an intermission, the Potsdam Community Chorus will present "Whether Men Do Laugh or Weep" by Ralph Vaughan Williams, "I Am in Need of Music" by David Brunner and "In Remembrance" by Jeffrey Ames. The concert will conclude with Lauridsen's "Sure on This Shining Night," ending with "Ye Shall Have a Song" from "The Peaceable Kingdom" by Randall Thompson.

Conducted by Tammara Madeja, the Potsdam Community Chorus performs with Nancy Hall on piano and Laura Toland on organ.

This concert will be broadcast live on the SUNY Potsdam website at the performance time. To view the program and see other upcoming streaming performances, visit www.potsdam.edu/academics/Crane/streaming.
