Chorale and Women's Choir to perform

The Chorale and Women’s Choir will perform choral literature from the Baroque to the present in concert on Sunday, Dec. 12 at 4 p.m. in Bowker Auditorium. The concert will be conducted by Ryan Ellis and Jeff Kempskie.

Two of the 13 works on the program are written by living composers who have strong connections to the department of music and dance. “A Rushing of New Waters” is written by retired professor Robert Stern and “Three Cynical Settings” by Robert Ruplenas, who received his bachelor’s degree in Music in 1974. Other works in the program include Baroque composers Henry Purcell and Georg Philipp Telemann’s “Sound the Trumpet” and “Werfet panier auf im lande,” Brian Tate’s “Gate, Gate,” Walter Hawkins’s “I’m Goin Up a Yonder,” and Stephen Chatman’s “Remember.” The concert will also include “Nigra Sum” by cellist and composer Pablo Casals, the traditional South African song “Nginani Na,” and Iris Levine’s setting of the Hebrew song “Hiney ma tov.”

Admission is $10 general public, $5 for students, senior citizens, and children under 18. Tickets are available at the Fine Arts Center Box Office (545-2511).
