“Our students are very excited to be working with Mr. Carrington,” said Dr. Mark Marotto, director of choral activities at LSC-Montgomery. “I am particularly looking forward to discovering what insights he has to share about this music that is dear to him.”
Some of the pieces the choir is working on include music from the Renaissance era, as well as selections from the King Singer’s, such as “You Are The New Day”.
The LSC-Montgomery Chamber Choir is an audition only group, with all members participating on a choral scholarship.
