The University of Rio Grande's Grande Chorale will perform their spring concert on Friday, May 3rd at 8:00 pm. The concert will feature a selection of popular vocal jazz tunes, including such favorites as "Bye, Bye Blackbird," "Blue Skies," and "In the Wee Small Hours of the Morning."
The University of Rio Grande's Grande Chorale is the most select, small vocal ensemble on campus and one of the faces of the Music Department. The group performs a variety of small-group literature, including popular musical styles in the fall semesters, and primarily vocal jazz each spring. The Grande Chorale features undergraduate students – freshmen through senior, music majors and non-music majors – with 8 - 12 vocalists and the Rio Combo of bass, drums, and piano led by Pianist Sunny Sundquist. The Grande Chorale frequently tours within and outside of the state of Ohio and performs for collegiate events. In 2006 the group completed a tour of England and Wales. Auditions for new members occur in the late spring and early fall of each school year.
