The Saint Vincent Camerata Scholars, an 18-voice choir that specializes in a cappella music of the Renaissance and contemporary periods, will present concerts, “The Choir Invisible,” at 8 p.m. Friday, Nov. 2 at St. Paul Cathedral, Pittsburgh, and at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 3 at the Saint Vincent Basilica. Both concerts are free and open to the public.
The program, celebrating the Catholic church feasts of All Saints and All Souls, will include works from the early, high and late Renaissance, each of which focuses on a theme related to the saints.
The Camerata Scholars include three Saint Vincent College students who are recipients of the Camerata's Scholarship Fund: Emily Fisher, a junior physical therapy major from Monroeville; Sheila Sogga, sophomore social psychology major from Pittsburgh (15206); and Jessica Kissel, a freshman English major, secondary education certification from Latrobe.
In 2011 the Scholars released their first CD, a Renaissance Christmas program entitled "A Blessed Day has Dawned" which was produced and distributed by JADE Music.
