After accompanying the Camerata Singers for over 30 years, Pauline Troia has announced her retirement. Join us as we sing some of her favorite repertoire, and thank her for sharing her artistry with us. Songs will include Long Time Ago and Simple Gifts by Aaron Copland, The Road Not Taken and The Lord is my Shepherd by Randall Thompson, A Gaelic Blessing by John Rutter, Music Down In My Soul by Moses Hogan and more! Pauline’s good friend soprano Leberta Loral will also join us in singing City Called Heaven. (Leberta was our soprano soloist for the Beatitude Mass in March.)
