University Singers, University Chorale, and Women's Chorale
- November 4, 2012 at 4:00 pm
The Mason School of Music has a thriving choral music program; come enjoy all three ensembles at Sunday’s concert! An opportunity to premier a new work by a living composer is an exciting experience for any musician, and the chance to be in the audience for a world premier is equally special! The University Singers under the direction of Dr. Stan Engebretson are honored to premier Donald McCullough’s “Song of the Shulamite,” inspired by the heroine of the biblical “Song of Solomon.” Dr. Lisa Billingham, conductor of the University Chorale, will be leading the ensemble in a program of North and South American music. This includes the sweeping melodies of Copland’s “The Promise of Living” from The Tender Land, a Brazilian folk song, and a work by Argentinian composer Ariel Ramírez. The Women’s Chorale, directed by Professor Mary Ann East, will perform an entire program of works by female composers spanning the centuries.
