Chamber Singers and Concert Choir Presents Night Music
Published on: October 07, 2010
The Chamber Singers and Concert Choir from Lone Star College-Montgomery will perform with the String Ensemble a selection of mysterious and evocative music inspired by the night on Thursday, October 21, at 7:30 p.m., in the mainstage theatre (Building d). The concert is free and open to the community. The concert is a glance at music that evokes the splendor, majesty and serenity of the evening.
"Composers have always been inspired by night and its mystery,” said Dominick DiOrio, director of choral activities and assistant professor of music at LSC-Montgomery. “The Chamber Singers, Concert Choir, and String Ensemble will present musical gems by Brahms, Mozart, and others. Faculty soprano, Elizabeth Borik, will join the ensembles for a truly unforgettable night of radiant music.”
The choir is directed by DiOrio and Dr. Lisa M. Burrell, director of string ensemble. The Chamber Singers are a select group of 18 students selected by an annual audition. The group is the premiere vocal ensemble in the College.
Currently, DiOrio is a doctoral candidate in choral conducting at Yale University. He received his master’s degree in choral conducting from Yale University in 2008, studying with noted professors Marguerite L. Brooks and Simon Carrington. DiOrio received his bachelor’s degree in composition from the Ithaca College School of Music in 2006, graduating summa cum laude.
