Chanson to perform Feb. 10 at Piedmont College Chapel

POSTED: February 9, 2012 12:30 a.m.

"Chanson" means "a French song," also the name of a male a capella group that will perform at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Feb. 10, in the Piedmont College Chapel in Demorest.

The six-voice ensemble was formed in 1997 at Concordia College in Moorhead, Minn., where the young musicians were members of Concordia's famed traveling choir. The group's performance will encompass many genres and styles, including three Renaissance love songs from the Middle Ages, three world folk songs, three Psalm settings from the Bible, and pieces created by members of Chanson.

Chanson, now in its 12th season, has produced four albums. The most recent is "In Dreams" with works by composers Stephen Paulus, Francis Poulenc and pieces by members of Chanson.
