April 18, 2012- King’s College alumni and current Cantores Christi Regis choir members will perform a free public concert of classical, contemporary, sacred and secular choral music during the annual spring concert to mark the tenth anniversary of the group’s founding. The concert will be at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, April 28, in the J. Carroll McCormick Campus Ministry Center, located on Jackson Street.

Under the direction of founding director Robert Yenkowski, nearly 60 alumni and current choir members will perform a variety of spiritual and gospel music,including selections from the group’s 2002 debut concert “Keep Your Lamps” by Andre Thomas, “River in Judea” arranged by John Leavitt, and “Salmo 150” by Ernani Aguiar.

Cantores Christi Regis was started in the fall of 2001 with a group of 12 students and performed its first concert the following April. The choir has now more than doubled in size with more than 30 members. For the past several years, the choir has performed for community events and travelled to sing with St. Bernardine’s gospel choir in Baltimore.

The Cantores Christi Regis Spring Concert is free and open to the public. The group’s performance is part of King’s “Experiencing the Arts” series. For more information, visit “Experiencing the Arts Calendar” at www.kings.edu or contact Rob Yenkowski at (570) 208-6044.
