EAU CLAIRE -- The University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire Symphonic Choir, conducted by Stephen Rosolack, and the Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Nobuyoshi Yasuda, will come together in a Fall Concert at 2 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 23, in Gantner Concert Hall of the Fine Arts Center.
The concert will begin with the mystical "Thirtieth Ode of Solomen (Opus 76)" by 20th-century composer Alan Hovhannes. The cantata will feature soloists Robert Knight, baritone, Amy Minor, Canton, S.D, on the trumpet, and Todd Schendel, Wilton, on the trombone, together with the strings of the orchestra.
Also participating with the ensembles will be soloists Elizabeth Hellman, soprano, Kathryn Proctor Duax, contralto, Daniel Newman, tenor, and Robert Knight, baritone.
After intermission, the full ensemble and soloists will perform the great "Missa Solemnis in B Flat," by Franz Joseph Haydn.
"This Mass is the last of Haydn's six great symphonic genre and was premiered in 1802," Rosolack said. "Traditionally, the Mass has been nicknamed the 'Harmoniemesse,' which in German means the 'wind band Mass.' It's called this noting the fact that the full classical compliment of flute, oboes, clarinets, trumpets and timpani are used very prominently with the strings in every movement of the work."
Ticket are $4.75 for the public, $3.75 for ages 17 and under, 62 and over and faculty and staff, or $1.25 for students with their UW-Eau Claire Blugold cards. Tickets are available at the University Service Center or at the door. The Service Center number is (715) 836-3727.
