      The internationally renowned San Jose State University Choraliers
      will present "An Evening of Song" featuring the talented
      members of the choir in solos, duets, quartets and selections from
      their 2003 Spring Tour repertoire. The Choraliers recently returned
      from a very successful Spring Tour to Southern California and are
      preparing to give a European Concert Tour of Switzerland, Austria,
      and Italy in late June. On April 11th, they presented the opening
      concert of a new choral series: "Sing the American Spirit" at Old
      First Church in San Francisco where they commissioned a new work by
      San Francisco composer, Kirke Mechem titled "An American Trio".
      This prize-winning chamber choir of 32 talented singers will delight
      you with songs from American composers of the 20th century such as
      Leonard Bernstein's French Songs from "The Lark," Jean Berger's
      "It is Good to be Merry," and folk songs and spirituals typical of
      theAmerican Spirit. Also on the program will be two of Cecil
      Effingers's lovely Pastorales featuring Dane Carlson on oboe, "The
      Promised Land," arranged by Ronald Staheli, and Norman Luboff's
      moving arrangement of "Deep River."

      The Choraliers are proud to announce that they were chosen as the
      only American choir to participate in the Spittal International
      Competition for Choirs, July 4-6. They were the last American choir
      to win this prestigious competition in 1988. Proceeds from this
      concert will benefit the Choraliers upcoming European Concert Tour.

      THE SAN JOSÉ STATE UNIVERSITY CHORALIERS are considered one of
      America's preeminent chamber choirs. Under the direction of Dr.
      Charlene Archibeque, this select ensemble specializes in intimate
      chamber music from the Renaissance and Twentieth Century, and ethnic
      music from many cultures. The Choraliers achieved fame in Europe by
      winning the prestigious "Choir of the World" title at the 1991
      International Musical Eisteddfod in Llangollen, Wales. During
      their fourteen international concert tours, the Choraliers have won
      first prizes in six of Europe's most prestigious competitions,
      including Spittal, Austria; Den Haag, Holland; Tallinn, Estonia;
      Miedzyzdroje, Poland, and six trophies in Gorizia, Italy.
      Their "surprise" performance in Rotterdam for the Fifth Triennial
      World Symposium of Choral Music in 1999 received wide acclaim for
      its distinctive timbre and programmatic diversity. Most recently,
      the Choraliers were one of only ten choirs selected to participate
      in the 2001Internationaler Kammerchor--Wettbewerb Marktoberdorf.
      The Choraliers have performed for numerous state, divisional, and
      national conventions of ACDA and MENC, most recently at the 1995
      National ACDA in Washington D.C. and the 2002 Western Division ACDA
      in Honolulu. The Choraliers have produced seven critically
      acclaimed compact discs entitled Together, Vidu, Gaudete, Virtuosi,
      Encore, Experience, and their most recent A Choraliers Christmas.
