Music to our ears

Memorial University teamed up with the popular St. John's-based FESTIVAL 500 organization to produce a special recording of 38 choirs from nine countries around the world this past year. FESTIVAL 500: Choral Performances 2003 contains selected highlights, special concerts and interviews with participants of the festival including Grammy award-winning composer Bobby McFerrin, who performed at the event. The CD was released in February. Below are six selections from that CD.
