(Norfolk, CT) – The Yale-China Association in collaboration with the Norfolk Chamber Music Festival presents a special event this 2012 season. The St. Paul’s Co-educational College Mixed-Voice Choir and Primary School Concert Choir from Hong Kong are performing in this benefit concert for the Yale-China Association with a unique choral repertoire celebrating milestones in Yale-China’s history of 111 years.

 

Tuesday night’s concert will feature sacred choral music to commemorate Yale-China’s missionary roots, followed by pieces by Yale composers (including Ives and Hindemith), works by American and Chinese composers, and finally, choral pieces that infuse traditional folk songs from both cultures to create a cross-cultural medley, inspired by the bidirectional work of Yale-China’s programs today.
