Parents and Family Weekend Choral Concert featuring the University Singers, Men's Glee Club, and Cantatrici
Come kick off the choral season at W&L with the University Singers, Men's Glee Club, and Cantatrici. The concert will begin with the Men's Glee Club, including a performance of Mack Wilberg's heartrending arrangement of The Dying Soldier. Cantatrici will follow and then the two choirs will join forces for Sarah Hopkins' haunting Past Life Melodies, a work complete with aboriginal chanting and harmonic overtone singing paired with lighting throughout the hall. The centerpiece of the program will be the University Singers' performance of Lithuanian composer Vaclovas Augustinus' Anoj Pusej Dunojelio, sung surrounding the audience, and then immediately moving to the world premiere of Shane Lynch's Aether, a work performed with dance, movement, and lighting. Also featured will be the Lexington debut of Uģis Prauliņš' stunning Kyrie eleison from his 2002 Missa Rigensis. Masterpieces by Josef Rheinberger, Dan Forrest, Rosephanye Powell, and others will round out the evening; finally closing with the W&L tradition, Shenandoah.
Tickets are free, but required and available only to current W&L students and families.
