The Covington Catholic High School Chamber Choir will host the University of Louisville Cardinal Singers and the Northern Kentucky University Chamber Choir for an evening concert of sacred a cappella choral music at the Cathedral Basilica of the Assumption in Covington on Thursday, March 31 at 7:30 p.m. pm. Admission is free and all are welcome to attend.
The CovCath Chamber Choir has 22 members and performs a wide variety of musical styles. In addition to its singing role for all-school liturgies and other faith-based initiatives throughout the diocese, the chamber choir has a long tradition of professional-level studio recordings. In recent years, this group has renewed emphasis on live choral music performances, culminating in this concert alongside the University of Louisville Cardinal Singers and Northern Kentucky University Chamber Choir.
CCH Music Director Andrew Miller studied with University of Louisville Director of Choral Activities Dr. Kent Hatteberg when he completed his master’s degree at UofL.
“Dr. Hatteberg’s influence had a profound effect on my training as a teacher and a musician,” Miller said. The opportunity to invite the University of Louisville Cardinal Singers, a 40-voice ensemble that has gained international recognition for its excellence and musicality, is a tremendous opportunity for our program and our region.To also share this collaboration with the NKU Chamber Choir, an excellent 24-voice vocal ensemble led by Ms. Katie Barton, further adds to this which will be an extraordinary evening of sacred choral music.
Each ensemble will sing a program of sacred choral music designed to fully explore the acoustics of the cathedral. This space, the Mother Church of the Diocese of Covington, is a magnificent space to experience the nuance and vocal finesse that these talented choirs will showcase.
