Troubadours garner standing ovation at Carnegie Hall
The Newman University Troubadours received a standing ovation following their June 13 appearance at the most respected concert hall in the nation. Newman’s select vocal ensemble had been invited back to Carnegie Hall for the concert after their performance during the Thanksgiving 2007 break with other chorale groups from the United States and Canada. For this appearance, the group performed a new work, “Symphony of Songs,” by nationally renowned choral conductor, composer/arranger, and former Newman faculty member Dr. John Leavitt.
“I want to give a big thank you to everyone who supported us with monetary gifts as well as prayers for a successful trip,” said Newman Director of Choral Music Deanne Zogleman. “It was such a thrill to stand on that stage and watch a standing ovation, and to know it was due to the passion and talent these students have for music.”Tags: America, Canada, Carnegie Hall, Deanne Zogleman, John Leavitt, Symphony of Songs, Thanksgiving, Troubadours, United States
