Syracuse Children’s Chorus Concert: The Shape of Life: The Birth, Life, Death, and Resurrection of Lake Onondaga

March 1, 2008

You won’t want to miss this truly extraordinary event, unlike any concert you’ve ever seen!  This one-of-a-kind performance marks the first collaboration between award-winning author Bruce Coville, the puppetry of Open Hand Theater, and the four choirs of the Syracuse Children’s Chorus.  Choristers and audience members will share the joy of singing together by exploring the tradition of shape-note singing.  The dramatization will tell the story of


Lake through eleven well-known shape-note hymn tunes, including

New Britain, commonly known as Amazing Grace.  The performance will also feature students from


University and an alumni quartet comprised of former SCC choristers.  This concert is funded in part by grants from the National Endowment for the Arts, the HSBC Helen R. Brady Memorial Fund, and the John Ben Snow Foundation.Time: 4:00 pmHendricks Chapel, Syracuse University
