Join the University Chorus, Women's Chorus, and the CSU Vocal Jazz group for a very entertaining evening.
Joining the University Chorus and Women’s Chorus is CSU Vocal Jazz, under the direction of Suzanne Morrison.
Enjoy the music of Purcell, Finzi, Bruckner and modern composers such as Imant Raminsh, Jeffrey Ames, and Mark Hayes as they present genres ranging from secular folk songs to sacred spirituals and motets for a very entertaining evening.
“The program is an expression of a wide variety of human emotions and experiences,” says Austen Wilson, director of the Women’s Chorus, in regards to the first set of the evening.
The Women’s Chorus program will include Go Down Moses, an upbeat spiritual piece arranged by contemporary composer Mark Hayes, well-known for unique choral settings and virtuosic piano accompaniment.
The University Chorus, under the direction of Nathan Payant, will present a motley “compilation of favorites” from diverse genres and periods, the variety ranging from folk songs to sacred Latin to gospel and jazz. The chorus will close with the “rockin’ gospel” Let Everything That Hath Breath, arranged by Jeffery Ames, that will combine drums and bass accompaniment and a feature of four student solos.
“It’s one that will make you want to get up out of your seats and dance,” says Payant. “It should bring the house down!”
