The community is invited to a free concert by the Davis High School Madrigal Singers and the Advanced Treble Choir performing the repertoire from their recent musical tour in New York City. The concert will begin at 7 p.m. at the Brunelle Performance Hall at DHS, 315 W. 14th St. The two choirs were invited to perform as one of a select group from around the country at Avery Fischer Hall at Lincoln Center (home of the New York Philharmonic) over spring break. The musical selections are drawn from the works of famed choir composer and conductor Eric Whitacre and Broadway legend Stephan Schwartz.
Both choirs had the honor of working with Whitacre and Schwartz in intensive rehearsals prior to the concert along with a range of other master classes and events throughout the week.
