Cordus Mundi and Friends present world premiere

Male a cappella group Cordus Mundi brings the choral season to a conclusion with the eighth annual Cordus & Friends collaborative concert, featuring guest conductor Dr. David Fryling, who will lead a full choir made up of Cordus Mundi members and their invited soprano and alto Friends.

The concert and post-concert celebration occur Sunday, June 10, at Trinity Episcopal Church in Solebury, beginning with the concert at 4 p.m., followed by a reception/anniversary celebration.

Cordus Mundi will lead off the program with a short set featuring the world premiere of new music from composer Alice Parker, expressly commissioned through the Cordus Mundi Commission Fund. Cordus’ set also includes music from Perotin, Childs, Bright, and a recent modern composer named Freddie Mercury.

Cordus & Friends, under the direction of Fryling, professor of music and director of choral studies at Hofstra University and son of Cordus Mundi music director David W. Fryling, will then sing a program focusing on “The Americas.”

There will be sections devoted to Americana, indigenous peoples and South America.

Timothy Harrell, Cordus Mundi member and organist-choirmaster at Trinity Episcopal Church in Solebury, will provide selected piano accompaniment.

Cordus Mundi’s Friends come from a variety of area singing groups, including many Bucks County Choral Society singers.

Tickets are $20, with children under 12 admitted at no charge. Tickets can be purchased from Cordus Mundi members or Friends, or at the door. To reserve tickets, telephone 650-219-2748, or visit cordusmundi.com.
