The Birmingham Art Music Alliance (BAMA) presents Sursum Corda conducted by Lester Seigel in a concert of choral music featuring music by regional composers. This is Sursum Corda’s second collaboration with BAMA and their first performance at Southside Baptist Church.

Southside Baptist Church
1016 19th Street South
Birmingham, AL 35205

Free Admission


Sursum Corda will perform pieces by Birmingham Art Music Alliance composers including:

  • I Sing – Ed Robertson
  • Cantate Domino – Adriana Perera
  • Grant Us Peace – William Price
  • I am a little church – Timothy Banks
  • Remember – Joseph Landers


Other works on the program include:

  • Missa Brevis in Honorem Beatae Mariae Virginis – Kristina Vaskiliautskaite
  • Song to the Moon (La Luna) – Z. Randall Stroope
  • Absalom, My Son – Robert Sieving
  • Open My Eyes, That I May See – Lester Seigel
  • Wayfaring Stranger – American folk song, arr. Daniel Seigel

Lester Seigel, Sursum Corda’s director, says “The work of BAMA in the Birmingham area is a sign of the robust health of new music in Alabama and support given to these skilled composers. The works that were chosen are largely sacred in nature, and, though Sursum Corda no longer restricts itself to its original mission of performing only sacred works, such pieces remain at the heart of our programming and goal as an ensemble.” He continues, “…we are looking forward to our first performance in the beautiful atmosphere and acoustics of the Southside Baptist Church, which is becoming well-known for the diversity of its arts-oriented presentations.”
