What does it take to get to Carnegie Hall? Practice. ... And it doesn't hurt to sing under a conductor like Randall Speer.
Speer, a music professor at Randolph College, was one of a few conductors around the country selected to conduct a festival choir in Carnegie Hall in New York on Easter Sunday, April 8, 2012. He invited his students to come with him to perform on the famous stage.
They have been rehearsing Mozart's "Solemn Vespers," which they will perform just a few hours after British composer John Rutter leads an orchestra in the same auditorium.
The Randolph College Chorale will also perform "Solemn Vespers" at home in a concert with the Lynchburg Symphony Orchestra at 7:30 p.m. on April 15 in Houston Memorial Chapel. The concert will feature Randall Thompson's "The Place of the Blest" as well.
