Directed by Dr. Matthew Armstrong with Shelly Armstrong as collaborative pianist, the Chamber Choir reflects three distinct musical genres. The choir leads with traditional choral repertoire, such as the Italian madrigal “O belle fusa” by Orlando di Lasso and “Sing Me to Heaven” by Daniel Gawthrop. Vocal jazz follows, incorporating swing, bossa nova, a cappella, and Kerry Marsh’s reharmonization of “Uninvited” by Alanis Morisette. Musical theatre completes the evening, including “Louder Than Words” from “tick, tick…Boom!” and “With One Look” from “Sunset Boulevard.”
