The Late Night Singers, a choral group from Greifswald, Germany, will offer several local concerts during the week of April 9 through 14.
Three free performances will be held at First Presbyterian Church in Bryan, Peace Lutheran Church in College Station, and St. Paul’s Lutheran Church in Brenham. The 12-voice choir, from Bryan College Station’s Sister City in Germany, will be joining members of The Brazos Valley Chorale and Blinn College students for the performances.
The choir is directed by Dr. Sigrid Biffar and their repertoire includes works from the Renaissance and Baroque periods, compositions from the Romantic period as well as contemporary a cappella choral works. The concerts will include chorus music of the 20th and 21st centuries as well as arrangements of pop music and international folk music.
Coordinating the international music exchange program with Greifswald are the Bryan College Station Sister Cities Association and the Brazos Valley Chorale, in conjunction with Blinn College and the Goethe Institut of Germany.
In addition to the free performances, the Late Night Singers and the Brazos Valley Chorale Chamber Singers will hold a ticketed, benefit concert with limited seating at The Grand Stafford Theater in Bryan to raise funds for future exchange programs. Tickets may be purchased through their website, www.grandstaffordtheater.com.
