Join us for the traditional Family Weekend Choral Showcase, featuring the UVA University Singers, UVA Chamber Singers, Virginia Women’s Chorus and Virginia Glee Club in concert on Saturday October 27th, 2012 at 7:00 pm in Old Cabell Hall.

The evening will close with a joint performance of Charles Villiers Stanford’s beautiful 6 –part “Beati Quorum Via,” as well as the beloved UVa songs, sung by the choruses – more than 170 voices strong – who will be joined on stage by their alumni.
