The University of Alabama at Birmingham Concert Choir
The UAB Concert Choir is the premiere choral ensemble at the University of Alabama at Birmingham. The choir has developed an outstanding reputation across the United States and Europe with recent performances in France and an upcoming performance at the 2006 Southern Regional Convention of the American Choral Directors Association (ACDA).
The choir recently returned from their first tour of France, a trip that featured performances in historic Notre Dame Cathedral and participation in the 34th annual Florlilege Vocal de Tours in Tours, France. The choir won two awards at the competition: the Prix Du Ministère de La Culture, an award given for best interpretation of a French choral work, and shared the top award in the Mixed Choirs Category.
The UAB Concert Choir will combine with the Birmingham Concert Chorale and present Handel's Messiah in December and Mozart's Solemn Vespers in April. Other recent performances of major works include the Requiem by Maurice Durufle' and King David by Honegger, Gloria by John Rutter and Britten's Ceremony of Carols.
