On a glorious afternoon with perfect spring weather, the student group Chrysostomos opened the performance. Directed by Thomas Quackenbush (’14), Chrysostomos sang a selection of European and American motets and hymns, many of which appear on its new CD, Triumph Over the Grave. Next, the Thomas Aquinas College Choir, directed by Daniel Grimm (’76) took the stage, performing some of the world's best-loved opera choruses. Finally the two choirs came together to sing Bach’s “Jesu, Joy of Man’s Desiring” and then led the audience in “God Bless America.”
