The Westminster Choir
The Westminster Choir, conducted by Joe Miller, makes its Corpus Christi debut with a concert titled “Half Acre” on Saturday, January 12 at 7:30 p.m. at Texas A&M Corpus Christi’s Performing Arts Center, 6300 Ocean Drive in Corpus Christi. Tickets are $15 and $10 and can be purchased online at pac.tamucc.edu.
Their program takes its title from Dan Messé's lyrical song Half Acre and includes choral masterworks ranging from Claudio Monteverdi’s Hor che’l chiel e la terra to Ted Hearne’s thought-provoking Consent to Ēriks Ešenvalds’ evocative Long Road, as well as American folk songs and spirituals. Setting the standard for choral excellence for 99 years, the Westminster Choir is composed of students at Westminster Choir College. It has been the chorus-in-residence for the prestigious Spoleto Festival USA since 1977, performing both in concert and as the opera chorus. The choir’s 2018 – 2019 season includes concerts in Beijing, China; Texas and Oklahoma; as well as performances at the American Choral Directors Association’s National Conference in Kansas City, its annual residency at the Spoleto Festival USA and the release of a new recording: Frank Martin: Mass for Double Choir.
