Free folk choir concert Sept. 13
FERDINAND – The University of Notre Dame Folk Choir will perform at the monastery church of the Sisters of St. Benedict of Ferdinand at 8 p.m. EDT Sept. 13.
This choir, with more than 60 members, has traveled the world and brought their repertoire to thousands of people. Each Sunday during the academic year they can be heard at mass in the Basilica of the Sacred Heart on Notre Dame’s campus.
The choir’s musical offerings have been gathered from all parts of the world. Many of the arrangements are exclusive to the choir, having been arranged by its directors and a variety of other composers, and sung almost entirely in four-part harmony.
They blend guitar, organ, instruments, percussion and voice into a unique diversity of style.
There is no charge for the concert; a free will offering is welcome. This is the fourth annual concert of the Sisters of St. Benedict’s Mechtilde of Hackeborn Sacred Music Series, supported through an endowment established by the Verkamp family in honor of Sister Mary Aquin and Sister Mary Ann Verkamp.
