Chorale to Spotlight Vivaldi

The Eastern Mennonite University Chorale will present its spring concert 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Apr. 20, in Martin Chapel of the seminary building at EMU.

The 21-member student choir, directed by Janet M. Hostetter, will perform Vivaldi’s "Gloria," accompanied by the EMU string quartet; John Fast, organist; April Miller, oboist; Jim Warner, trumpeter; and soloists Rebeca Barge, Kirsten Getz and Sylvia Hooley.

The program will conclude with several smaller octavos, including "Hope for Resolution," a piece featuring both children and adult choirs, flute, piano, saxophone and djembe.

Hostetter is an alumna of EMU and James Madison University where she completed a BA in music education and her MM in choral conducting. Hostetter is also director of music at Harrisonburg Mennonite Church and an elementary music educator in Rockingham County.

Admission to the program is free.
