Holy Spirit’s Schola Cantorum Makes Its Debut

Now in its second year, the twelve-member vocal ensemble at Holy Spirit Catholic Church known as the Schola Cantorum brings traditional sacred songs and sounds to the Sea Islands community Sunday, October 14, 2018 at 4:30 pm in its inaugural concert debut.

Schola Concert 9_2018The Sacred Sounds in Concert will include works by contemporary composers Fedak, Gjeilo and Trotta nestled alongside beautiful classics and early American hymn tunes and spirituals. The Schola will also perform a new and beautiful setting of the Magnificat by St. Stephen’s organist and choirmaster, Wayne Helmly, as well as a commissioned setting of the traditional Irish Blessing by Director of Music at Christ Our King, Scott Atwood.

Instrumentalists Kathleen Wilson (harp), Eloise Jos (violin/fiddle), and Philip Lipton (clarinet) accompany the Schola (Elise Jorgens, Cecelia Dawson, April Gorski, Mary Lubic, Maryellen Monahan, Caroline Baggett, Kit McMurry, Benjamin Pulsipher, Bruce VanVoorhis, Nick Rawn Carter, and John Termine) with arrangements by director Laura Ball.
