Cordus Mundi presents Cordus and Friends concert


Bucks County-based male a cappella group Cordus Mundi brings the choral season to a conclusion with the ninth 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 begin with the concert at 4 p.m. Sunday, June 9, at Trinity Episcopal Church in Solebury Township.

The concert starts with a short set from Cordus Mundi with music from Carrillo, Hill, Barnum, Riggs, Sieving and Arlen. Under the direction of Dr. Fryling, Cordus & Friends and the Cordus Friends alone will then sing an accompanied and unaccompanied program with music from Douma, Vaughan Williams, Esenvalds, Chydenius, Shabalala, Parton, Tindley, Hall, Johnson and Alexander.

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. Fryling, professor of music and director of choral studies at Hofstra University and son of Cordus Mundi music director David W. Fryling, has assisted in Cordus Mundi’s development for several years.

Tickets for “Cordus & Friends” are $20, with children under 12 admitted at no charge. The post-concert reception/anniversary celebration will follow at the concert’s conclusion. Tickets can be purchased at cordusmundi, from Cordus Mundi members and/or Cordus Mundi Friends, or at the door.
