The Duke University Chorale, the primary choral group of the Department of Music at Duke, will perform a concert at The Bishop’s School on Thursday, March 14 at 7 p.m. in St. Mary’s Chapel on the La Jolla school’s campus. Tickets are $5 and are available online on the School’s Box Office. The mostly undergraduate 50-voice Chorale tours annually during Duke’s spring break, presenting both sacred and secular music ranging from the Renaissance to contemporary works, and from serious to more popular music. Highlights of this year's tour program include works by Bernstein, Stroope, Tallis, and Moses Hogan, as well as California composers Morten Lauridsen, Frank La Rocca, Henry Mollicone, and Walter Saul. The Chorale has toured China, Italy, Austria, Hungary, Poland, the Czech Republic, England, Wales, Mexico, and many parts of the U.S. They are conducted by Rodney Wynkoop and accompanied by Mary Hamilton.
The Bishop’s School is an independent, coeducational college-preparatory day school for students in grades six through twelve who live throughout San Diego County. Founded in 1909, the School is affiliated with the Episcopal church.
