Sixth Annual Great Court Concert

May 28, 2010 — Great Court of Main HallThe halls of the Great Court in the Main Building will be filled with the voices of the University Choir and Chamber Singers performing the glorious music of Brahms, Bach and others. The sixth annual concert on Sunday, June 6th at 3 PM will feature Brahms’Liebeslieder Waltzer, Bach’s Motet No. 6 and works by Dufay, Schutz, Josquin and Tchesnokov. This concert has grown into one of the most anticipated annual choral events at Drexel due in part to the wonderful unique acoustics and natural amplification of the Main Building and our talented student singers. 

This event also marks a significant milestone for Dr. Steven Powell, the college’s Director of Choral Activities, who will celebrate his 20th anniversary at Drexel. Dr. Powell inherited the University Chorus when it had only 20 non-auditioned singers and guided its evolution into the successful ensemble it is today with over 60 singers. Dr. Powell formed Naturally Sharp, Drexel's Jazz Ensemble, and has had a major influence on the Chamber Singers, with both groups under his direction. Dr. Powell is also the founder and host for the annual Madrigal Dinner, an event under his direction since 1991.
