Choral Concert Oct. 26 features modern premiere of Latin motet

The Erskine Choraleers

The Music Department of Erskine College will present the Choraleers, Chamber Singers, Women’s Chorale, and Fleetones, directed by Assistant Professor of Music Dr. Mark Nabholz, in their Fall Choral Concert Friday, Oct. 26, at 7:30 p.m. in Memorial Hall. The concert will feature both sacred and secular music. Admission is free and the public is welcome to attend.

“This concert will include the modern premiere of a Latin motet for double chorus by Spanish composer Antonio de Salazar, recently discovered in a Mexico City cathedral where he served as director of music,” Nabholz said.

“It is likely that the piece has not been heard since 1730, when it was last performed at the cathedral.”

The Choraleers, who performed a program of seven challenging pieces from memory Oct. 12 at the South Carolina American Choral Directors Association (ACDA) Fall Conference at Coastal Carolina University, will present their ACDA conference selections at the concert, Nabholz said. The program includes works in English, Latin, and Spanish.

The Erskine group submitted an audition tape and were selected as featured performers for the ACDA event. In the audience were more than 500 middle- and high-school singers and their directors.
