The annual Vassar Womens Chorus winter concert will be given at 8 p.m. on Saturday, December 1, in the Skinner Recital Hall. The performance, sponsored by the Department of Music, is free and open to the public.
"Four Old English Carols" will launch the evening, leading into Gabriel Faures "Messe Besse," and then Camille Saint-Saenss "Ave Maria." Other winter and snow-themed selections will follow, and the program will conclude with "A Ceremony of Carols."
Entering its fifth year, the 45-member chorus is reviving a tradition from Vassars past. The ensemble performs on campus and travels, recently performing with the University of Virginia Glee Club and the Elm City Girls Choir.
The chorus is conducted by Rebecca Rosenbaum, adjunct instructor of music theory. Rosenbaum received her B.A. in music from Vassar College and her M.Mus. and M.M.A. in choral conducting from Yale University, where she is currently completing the doctoral program.
