Mercyhurst concert features music from movies

“Driving Miss Daisy,” “Pig in the City,” Angela’s Ashes” … what do they all have in common? Movie soundtracks, of course.

The Mercyhurst College Concert Choir and the Carpe Diem Chorale, under the direction of Rebecca Ryan, will bring timeless movie tunes to the concert stage when they present “Music from Movies: Classic Choruses and Solos” on Sunday, April 4, at 2:30 p.m. in the Mary D’Angelo Performing Arts Center.

During the movies, one hears breathtaking compositions – classical arias and choruses by such famous composers as Verdi and Dvorak – that are performed by choirs, orchestras and celebrated soloists.

Mercyhurst’s concert will bring you familiar selections, such as the famous “Sul’ Aria” from “The Shawshank Redemption,” “Lacrimosa” from “Amadeus,” and “Agnus Dei” from “Lorenzo’s Oil.”

Accompanists include Kate Amatuzzo and Louisa Jonason with guest artists Dr. Rossitza Goza on violin and Erik Mann on the guitar.

Ticket prices are: Adults, $6.50; Seniors/students, $5; Youth (15 and under), free. For more information, call the box office at 824-3000.
