The event was held at the Carlos do Carmo auditorium on Sunday, May 14th, with spectators highlighting the “beautiful work” that was performed by the American choir, which included students of the university and members of the Penn State Glee Club.
The performers were directed by Christopher Kiver whilst the soloist was Jennifer Trost, a mezzo soprano, accompanied by Rachel Flicker on the piano.
The Choir Week, that is taking place until Saturday May 20, will also present three choirs on the last day of the festival, with the Grupo Coral Ossónoba (Faro), Coral Almira (Alcácer do Sal) and Coral Ideias do Levante, all set to perform at the Santo António church in Mexilhoeira da Carregação at 5pm.
