Singers to Bring Timeless Sound to Hermitage
The ASU Chamber Singers and Vocal Ensemble will take listeners on a sonic voyage through time in a free public concert at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Sept. 30, at the Mt. Carmel Hermitage near Christoval.
The Chamber Singers will open the program with Han Leo Hassler's "Missa Secunda," a beautiful example of the Latin polyphonic tradition in post-Reformation Germany.
The Vocal Ensemble will follow with nostalgic folk-rock anthems of the 1960s and '70s, including "He Ain't Heavy, He's My Brother," John Lennon's "Imagine," Bob Dylan's "Ring Them Bells," Pete Seeger's "Turn! Turn! Turn!" Also, "Day By Day" from the musical Godspell will be featured.
The Lee Middle School show choir, Rebel Rage, will add two Renaissance madrigals to the program, and then combine with Angelo State's singers on the Louis Armstrong hit, "What a Wonderful World."
To reach the Hermitage, take U.S. Highway 277 south toward Eldorado. Go past the town of Christoval, then turn right onto Allen Lane, the third street after the Tres Amigos convenience store. After about two miles, look for the entrance to Mt. Carmel Hermitage on your left.
