The Ghostlight Chorus of New York will perform Sunday, July 24 at 3 p.m. in the Camden Amphitheatre, Atlantic Avenue, as part of its summer New England tour. The chorus’ Water & Light program will be presented outdoors, so bringing blankets or lawn chairs for seating is advised. The rain venue is inside the library.

The concert will feature a special performance of “The Tide Rises; the Tide Falls” by Thomaston native Nathan Scalzone, as well as program highlights such as Whitacre’s “Water Night” and Ligeti’s “Lux Aeterna,” perfect for a refreshing concert on a hot summer day. Scalzone, who lives in New York City, said the concert is dedicated to the late John Fales of Cushing

Ghostlight is a style-flexible, eclectic vocal ensemble with repertoire ranging from Renaissance madrigals and Romantic lieder to jazz arrangements, sound sculpture compositions and speech-performance pieces with an emphasis on a cappella international choral compositions of the 19th and 20th century. Founded in 2010 by artistic director Evelyn Troester, the ensemble is an elite chamber choir with 16 to 20 singers focusing on vocal/choral technique work, musicality, intonation and rhythm mastery, as well as creative improvisation.

Troester is an internationally accomplished musical director, choral conductor and music educator. Originally from Germany, she received her master’s degree with a dual concentration in performance and music education at the renowned University of Music and Performing Arts in Munich in 2005. She is currently a doctoral candidate and teaching assistant at Columbia University’s prestigious Teachers College. Troester’s focus on pedagogy and psychology have led her to develop teacher training workshops on creativity development and leadership, the subject of which she was invited to lecture at The ECONOMIST Human Potential Conference here in New York last September.
