EAU CLAIRE - The Women's Concert Chorale will present its spring concert at 2 p.m. Sunday, April 27, in Gantner Concert Hall of the Fine Arts Center at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire.
The group will be directed by Stephen Rosolack, associate professor of music. This concert will mark the conclusion of spring activities for the choir, and it also will be presented as the final concert of the Annual Spring Tour which takes the Chorale to high schools in Marshfield, Stevens Point, Waupaca and the Green Bay area.
The concert will feature two extended works. "In praise of Love," by the contemporary Scandinavian composer Knut Nystedt, is a set of movements based on texts from the First Book of Corinthians and the Song of Songs. "The Place of the Blest" is a four-movement work by the late Randall Thompson, which sets texts dating back to the 12th century.
The group will perform other pieces by Rozsa, Schubert and Barber. Chorale pianist Heidi Dahl, a sophomore music therapy major from Bloomington, Minn., will perform "Malaguena" by Ernesto Lecuona. Popular music also will be featured and will include Aaron Doty, a senior music major from Eau Claire, and Matthew Kendziera, a junior music major from Boscobel, on bass and percussion. A small ensemble from the Chorale, Universal Language, also will perform "Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy" by Don Raye.
Tickets for the show are $4.50 for the general public; $3.50 for senior citizens, children under 18 and faculty and staff; or $1.25 with a UW-Eau Claire ID. Tickets are available at the University Service Center, 836-3727, and at the door.
