Our programming options include the University Chorus, Chamber Choir, Concert Band, Orchestra, Jazz Ensemble and Pep Band. There are also other student-led opportunities, such as Gentlemen of the Hall.

Concerts are held both on the South Orange campus and at the South Orange Performing Arts Center (SOPAC) in downtown South Orange, N.J.

The Seton Hall Choral and Orchestra Program is led by the accomplished direction of Jason Tramm, Director of Choral Activities. Tramm actively teaches voice and conducting and is experienced in both the professional and academic musical worlds.

Concert for Hope
Haydn's Lord Nelson Mass and the works of Arvo Part, Ola Gjeilo and John Tavener
Sunday, October 28, 2018 at 7 p.m.

Saint Bartholomew's Church
325 Park Avenue
New York, New York 10022

Conductor Dr. Jason C. Tramm x320Conductor Dr. Jason C. Tramm will lead the Seton Hall University Chorus and the MidAtlantic Symphony Chamber Orchestra as they perform Haydn's Lord Nelson Mass (Mass for Troubled Times) and the works of Avro Part, Ola Gjeilo and John Tavener.

In the midst of turbulent times, music holds the power to heal and inspire. Haydn's Missa in Angustiis was written in 1798, a time of great instability in Europe. From the gripping and intense first movement, to the life affirming "Dona Nobis Pacem" this work transcends its time and offers hope to us in our own time. Ola Gjeilo's Song of the Universal is a setting of verses Whitman's great work, according to the composer, "I love the unabashed optimism, exuberance and his unwaving confidence in our deeper humanity – all through the prism of a big, warm, beating heart." Works of Pärt and Tavener complete this evening of powerful music.
