University Chorale is finalist in WGBY choral competition
The University Chorale is a finalist in the WGBY Together in Song Choral Competition and will be one of the featured choirs in the competition’s showcase concert on April 28 at 7 p.m. at the Paramount Theatre in Springfield.
The showcase will be hosted by Springfield Symphony Orchestra conductor Kevin Rhodes, and also will be broadcast live on WGBY.
The University Chorale is conducted Stephen A. Paparo, assistant professor in the Department of Music and Dance.
Together in Song, now in its third season, celebrates the living choral tradition in western New England by providing opportunities for adult and children’s choirs to perform and compete in a variety of styles--classical, folk, gospel, barbershop, pops and doo wop. Finalists performing in the showcase were chosen by the votes of WGBY viewers and judges.
