CLASSICAL | Choir of Royal Holloway 

If you're a lover of the English church music tradition, you know that the word "royal" in the name of a choir is usually a good sign. The University of London's Choir of Royal Holloway will undoubtedly prove the accuracy of that theory when it performs Friday night. The 24-member choir has a history dating back to 1884 and gives more than 50 concerts each year; its performance here is part of a spring 2016 tour of Canada and the US. You'll hear a sampling of the basics of its repertoire under director Rupert Gough: choral music from England, America, Finland, and the Baltic, and music by the prolific Rochester-born composer Carson Cooman.

Choir of Royal Holloway will perform Friday, April 8, at Third Presbyterian Church, 4 Meigs Street. 7:30 p.m. $15 general; $5 students; under 12 free.;
